    Yes, In the United Kingdom, there are four native species of snakes: the adder, grass snake, smooth snake and barred grass snake. Adders, Vipera berus, are the only venomous snakes which are native to the UK.

    Yes. The European viper (Vipera berus) is venomous and it is found in the UK and continental Europe, but not in Ireland,  but its bite is only mildly venomous, and not as venomous as those of cobras or rattlesnakes so fatalities are very rare among bite victims.
