A short clip of some of our shots of the Peringuey's Adder (Bitis peringueyi), taken in the Namib Desert. These adders are some of the best ambush hunters in the world, hiding under the sand and using their tails as bait, and seizing any prey that is drawn to them or has the misfortune of walking past. They are endemic to the Namib Desert, and one of our favorite snakes to film.
