BBC wildlife show 'Serpent' journeys to Costa Rica to learn more about the hunting techniques employed by the Eye-lash Viper. Using tiny spy cameras, Sir David Attenborough and the wildlife team are able to see close-up images of the snake during attack for the the first time and analyse the sophisiticated sensory techniques it employs before deploying its poison on any prey.
