Very happy to see that you are okay. You are actulay pretty lucky through that the snake only got 1 fang into you, as a full on bite would obviously be much worse. I have seen people in costa rica that have recieved a full on bite from the eyelash viper and it looked extremely painful and nasty! This eyelash viper can sure cause pain.

One should not underestimate an eyelash viper....they can give some a serious painful and cytotoxic bite! I've seen some nasty pictures of bites but glad everything turned out okay here.
