Craeture Feature #6: Adder

The Common, or European, Adder is the only venomous snake to make its home in the British Isles. As such, it has been the subject of much folklore. Although its bite is painful and poisonous, it is not aggressive and will only attack if cornered or injured. There are numerous anti-venoms available and although bites are fairly common, hospitalisation and fatalities are not so much.
