22. Pit Viper

The Pit Viper is a subfamily of venomous vipers found in Eurasia and the Americas. Located between the eye and the nostril, these snakes have a pit organ which contains a membrane that can detect infrared radiation from warm bodies. At night, it allows the snakes to see an image of their predator or prey — as an infrared camera does — giving them a true animal superpower.
