B = V. a. montandoni - Romanian Dobrudja
C = V. a. meridionalis - Greece
D = V. a. transcaucasiana - Georgia
R = Rostral
SR = Suprarostral

Anyone breeding Vipera or Macrovipera species please get into contact with me for future reference. I am a former Durbanite living in Toronto and I am planning to do a few exports a year from SA to get my collection up and running again. I already know people who can export from SA so you wouldn't have to worry about shipping.
