Bitis peringueyi is a venomous viper species found in Namibia and southern Angola. No subspecies are currently recognized.
An ambush hunter, it buries itself just beneath the surface of the sand with only its eyes and the tip of its tail exposed (individuals with black tail-tips employ caudal luring). When prey happens by, it is seized and envenomated.
Its diet includes the lizards Aporosaura and Meroles, and the barking gecko Ptenopus. Aporosaura have a high water content and are an important source of water for these snakes.
