    Vipera aspis

    Many visitors are surprised, but yes, we have poisonous snakes in Switzerland.
    Meanwhile because of limitations in their habitats they are very rare, but still watch out for them if you sit on rocks or grab onto stones on the ground.
    If you are biten, stay calm and see a doctor. The venom is not very dangerous, there was no deadly incident reported since the 1960's.
