Abstract Junge Puffottern erbeuten Mäuse durch Giftbisse. Mittels Vorschnellen des S-förmig nach hinten gebogenen Vorderkörpers beißt die Schlange in das Beuteobjekt; Kiefermuskeln pressen Toxin aus den Giftdrüsen. Mit Zeitdehnung.
At normal speed and in slow-motion the film shows how young puff adders catch mice by poisonous bites. The hungry snake lies in wait for each rodent and from a S-shaped backward position of the front part of its body it strikes at the prey as soon as this is within reach of its mouth.
