This Gaboon Viper, although usually docile, is one of the deadliest vipers in the world.

Its 5cm (2 inch) fangs delivers a whooping 5 to 7 ml of venom per bite; easily capable of killing a full adult human.

Great shot of this snake - love how you caught the tongue flicking out! There is wonderful details in the textures/scale seen on the head. My only suggestion on how to improve on the photo is lighting - especially the black portion on the head and along the side of the body near the head on the left is way too dark. Details are lost in shadow. Open the aperture to let more light in or in processing you can use New Ajustment Layer - Fill Light/Clarity to shine light in those shadow areas to bring back details.
