Default Unusual venemous snakes

Would be interesting to find out what everybody thinks is the most unusual venemous snake.
I'll start the ball rowling with the stilleto snake (Atractaspis species)
I think there amazing becasue of the fact that they never have to open there mouths to strike and instead just stick a fang out the side of their mouth and swing their head in the direction of their prey, or a predator trying to kill them.

I think Calliophis bivirgatus (Maticora bivirgata?) is one of the more unusual ones - it looks like the sort of plastic toy you'd find in a Toymaster bin and think "No snake would ever look like that..."

But thou shalt not stick your fingers in its mouth.

I'd love to see one in the flesh.
