Fea's viper
This species is the most primitive viperids species. Its primitive features include the large shields on its head (rather than the many small scales on the heads of other vipers and pit-vipers), smooth dorsal scales, and the egg-laying breeding method. It can be only found in the high altitude forest of China and Vietnam.
