The Herp Files was created by Chad Keates and Luke Kemp. It was created with the intention of showing off the reptiles and frogs of Southern Africa. The videos include general information about each species with interesting facts thrown in between. It is our attempt to expose the beauty of South Africa's enormous herpetological diversity while having just a 'bit' of fun. This video focuses on the puff adder (Bitis arietans) one of Southern Africa's most widespread and characteristic snakes.

Great video, many thanks for sharing this with us. I have had adults do very fast lunge strikes. Also they can rotate strike, so don't be fooled by one direction only. Kind regards from the Western Cape.

Great video, great idea not to neck the Puff Adder but to keep it in a tube :-) - I had never seen that before.
Interesting information that Puff Adders have no scent.
I just suscribed :-)
