The eyelash viper is a nocturnal, arboreal animal. ??This ??means that it does most of its hunting from late evening through early morning, and more than likely in, from, or around trees. ??When subduing its prey, the snake grabs it and holds on while it injects a hemotoxic venom.??Vipers are also one of the most dangerous of the poisonous snakes on Central America. ??Their venom affects the central nervous system of their victim as well as the cardiovascular system.
