Asp Vipers have venomous fangs so you should avoid being bitten by them. But they are usually harmless to humans unless the animal is threatened. There are over 30 species of Asp Viper, most of which live on their own or with a mate for life.

In an animal's natural habitat, it eats smaller animals for food, usually lizards and rodents. An animal this size would only need 2-3 small meals a month when in its natural environment but it must eat more when in captivity because its metabolism rate is fast due to living in a hotter climate than the animal's original habitat . The animal sometimes will eat the animal it killed the day before. Some Asp Vipers will squeeze their prey until they die and then swallow them whole or bite into them to suck out the animal's insides. The animal does this at night when it can't be seen because it has very poor eyesight.

Asp Vipers hatch from eggs and are venomous from birth. They give live birth, meaning that they don't lay eggs like most reptiles do.
