Top Ten Deadliest Snakes

The Top Ten

1 Black Mamba The black mamba is a species of extremely venomous snake, a member of the family Elapidae native to parts of Sub-Saharan Africa.

It's a swift attacking snake. Black Mambas are definitely the most deadly snake,
-Queen Cobra

Yeah, yeah I admit the Black Mamba is number 1. But who made this list? And why in the world is Terciopelo Viper not on here?

This snake is scary, they are the fastest snake on the planet, going up 20km/hr, and attacks anything within 20 METERS of it. They have enough venom in each bite to kill ten men, and they can strike up to a dozen times in a row. They are one of few snakes to attack humans.

Though they may not have the strongest venom, it is one of the fastest snakes, and most aggressive

2 King Cobra The king cobra is an elapid found predominantly in forests from India through Southeast Asia. more.

There was a show on animal planet called The Most Extreme, (which I made a list for the best episodes of, that only I had voted on so go check that list out), and on the show they would count down the animals of a category 10 to 1. One of the episodes was Deadly Snakes, and on it King Cobra was number 1. And in case you were wondering Inland Taipan was number 2, and Black Mamba was number 3 on the list.

Has anyone seen that video where a King Cobra literally EATS a Florida python?

If you categorize on accord of toxic intensity then inland is first above all. But we are rating snakes as per all criteria. Such as-1) Venom above 200mg which can kills 25 adults at a time.2) it can spit to eyes if it sees bigger animal.3) it can kill like a python.3) it eats mainly other snakes like rattle snake, krait etc. And the only snake eater among snakes.4) unlike black mamba which are generally shy and don't attack if not threatened, king cobra attack if they see you in their territory.5) it's the only snake which makes nest like a bird nest and watch the eggs until they hatch.6) it can stand 1/3rd of it's body (18.6 ft max length) with its hood wide open which makes it look more scarier.7) it can bite from a distance of more than 2 meters (nearly 3 mtr).8) more human killings than any-other snake in the world. THAT IS ENOUGH to describes to be a king among all poisonous.

This has to be the absolute deadliest. It kills the inland taipan AND black mamba. Also, this snake kills more humans and animals than any other snake. AND it injects the most poison than any other snake in each bite, this changes the tide against the black mamba, giving the cobra the advantage if they ever came face to face, plus it neurotoxins act extremely fast

3 Inland Taipan The Inland Taipan, is a venomous snake of the taipan genus commonly found in semi-arid regions of central east Australia. The inland taipan is not just a venomous snake it's considered the most venomous snake in the world by many people. When compared drop for drop and based on the median lethal dose more.

The most venomous snake in the world, there are no recorded cases of anyone dying as they live in central Australia away from most populated areas. However, if you were bitten it would be nasty.

I am seriously so sick and tired of hearing people say that Inland Taipan is the most dangerous snake in the world because it has the most lethal toxin. Guys, there's more to Deadliness then just how strong you are. The Inland Taipan is strong, but it's incredibly shy. The Inland Taipan will almost never attack a human unless they feel super threatened. On top of that, that would also mean that very few people die to this thing. Just because you have the most potent venom doesn't make the deadliest.

To all those people who are saying this is the deadliest snake in the world, you are wrong, wrong, WRONG. Sure the Inland Taipan has the most potent snake poison, but just because your powerful doesn't mean your deadly. There have been NO recorded documents of anyone being killed by an Inland Taipan. NONE!

It is the most venomous, I will grant you that so it does belong here, but it not the deadliest and is shy so again it belongs here. The only time it is extremely deadly is in captivity, where it will kill anything in its way to the exit or just if the animal is in captivity with it, in clouding females of the same species!

4 Death Adder

If you must know, most bites are no longer fatal. It was deadly, but there is a cure now.

This animal is one of the most dangerous animals in the world, it should be in the Top 5.

Death adder is nothing compared to inland taipan and black mamba

This should be second

5 Anaconda

They do perhaps not pose the most immediate threat to people of all the snakes on this list, most of which are venomous ones that are confirmed to be responsible for a substancial amount of human fatalities. However, the anaconda - being the largest snake species in the world as far as body mass goes, reaching over 27ft and 500 lbs, as recognised by Guinness World Records - is a constrictor. This means that while opportunistically hunting, they lie in ambush, waiting for their prey to approach. As soon as the prey item is within striking rage, they lunge forward and bite, using their six rows of recurved, razor-sharp teeth to latch onto the prey while coiling its body around it, so that it, within seconds, can start constricting. Anacondas have been known to exert a pressure of 90 psi while constricting. This implies that the killing is much quicker and more efficient than simply strangulation/asphyxiation, as that force is also capable of stopping blood flow, snapping necks, breaking ...more

The anaconda is not a poisonous or venomous snake. It is a constrictor. The anaconda wraps its body around the victim like a coil and squeezes and tightens until the victim is crushed to death. The anaconda is extremely heavy and muscular. An infant anaconda's constriction is about as strong as a Harley Davidson motorbike being placed on a adult humans chest. A mature/adult anaconda's constriction is the equivalent of a double decker bus being pushed down on an adult humans chest. The snake eats you whole from the head first. It has loose but fixed teeth which move like rows of feet. This helps the anaconda eat its large prey. The teeth help slide the prey into the snakes mouth. The anaconda is not the most deadly snake ever among all the species but it is the deadliest constrictor and one of the most popular snakes. The anaconda isn't aggressive as much on land as it is in water. The anaconda waits in murky brown water (camouflaged by its skins equally brown colour) waiting for ...more

Most Deadly Snake Ever! It Can Kill In Minutes! Be Careful Or Else It Will Attack You, Wrap You, And Constrict Squeeze And Crush The Life Out Of You! Plus: It Can Swallow You Headfirst And Whole Pushing And Squeezing You Down Into It's Stomach Thus Digesting And Dissolving You!

I don't see why they are so dangerous. They only eat every three weeks or so. That means that the chances that you will come across one that wants to eat you is extremely low

6 Taipan

Taipan is the deadliest snake in the world, yeh sure Sea Snake should be in the top ten but this should be first, deadliest snake venom in the world

The Australian Inland Taipan has the deadliest, most toxic venom on the planet..its No; 1 the Death Adder is No;2 the Australian common tiger is No;3, the tiger is responsible for the fastest human death by snakebite..just 3 min55 sec's.

3rd Deadliest venom
Big fangs
High venom injection volume

The taipan is actually two species and one of them is already on this list

7 Reticulated Python

A Reticulated python is the longest snake in the world.

No it's the anaconda

Largest python

Super strong biggest snake

8 Sea Snake

1 milligram of venom is enough to kill 200 men. The Belcher's sea snake is often brought up with fishing nets making it extremely deadly to fishermen

The Belcher's Sea snake is the most venomous snake in the world. This should be #1!

They are only dangerous when threatened. They are quite friendly and curious and love to examine divers' gear

On its own it is not too harmful but these guys like to party in groups of like 40

9 Russell's Viper

This snake is very aggressive and will do a lot of damage to your body. It is common in India and is one of the Big Four-the four snakes causing the most snakebite deaths in South Asia.

In terms of how many they kill, Russell's Viper is one of the most dangerous.

This snake is nothing compared to king cobra

Isn't there a snake on Snake Island that is really dangerous?

10 Rattlesnake Rattlesnakes are a group of venomous snakes of the genera Crotalus and Sistrurus of the subfamily Crotalinae.

There are only two rattlesnakes were I live eastern massasauga and timber

This snake is nothing compared to black mamba

There's only one rattlesnake where I live

A rattlesnake might be closer to you than you think

The Contenders

11 Green Anaconda

The green anaconda is bigger and stronger than the yellow anaconda

Not as strong as yellow anaconda

Not venomous but strong

Its beast as heck man

12 West African Green Mamba
13 Australian Brown Snake

The second most venomous snake in the world that also lives close to populated areas. It has small fangs but it doesn't need a lot of venom to kill an adult, death can even occur in minutes.

I saw a 140kg pig bitten by this kind of snake, it just took 2minutes to get that pig to lay down and died 7 minutes after the biting... And the worst thing is, brown snakes are so common in Queensland Australia bush areas, where you can see at least an average of two snake everyday during summer...

Scary thing, this snake. Causes 60% of Aussie deaths. That's deadly.

How is this not in the top ten?

14 Rhinoceros Viper

One bite equals tissue failure and everything else in your body doesn't work anymore and you're are dead

Deadly venom means death.

Kill you in one go

15 Boomslang

A EXTREMELY VENOMOUS SNAKE the boomslang is not agressive but still dangerous

Very very very dangerous he should be number 4

Whoa should be in the top 8 at least

Boomslang is a colourful snake that has horns and it's venom is very dangerous

16 Tiger Snake

The Tiger Snake is by far the most aggressive of the Australian snakes, if untreated its mortality to humans is about 70% and ts the most accurate biter of the Aussie snakes. I spend plenty of time around most of our snakes and the Tiger is the only one that wll actually come after you.
I don't know if it is more dangerous than the Black Mamba and the King Cobra is just scary as - but it's a more dangerous, if less venomous, snake than the Taipan.

17 Boa Constrictor The boa constrictor, also called the red-tailed boa or the common boa, is a species of large, heavy-bodied snake that is frequently kept and bred in captivity.

Yeah. He's/She's either just being a troll, doesn't know the actual power of a Boa Constrictor, or maybe he's/she's confused it for a Titanaboa. The Titanaboa was a snake that lived back in the prehistoric times and was the largest snake to ever live. So large, that if they were to swallow an average human, no bulge would show. Just like the anaconda and python, they were constrictors. This snake fed on crocodiles, and sometimes they would eat even larger reptiles.

How does the person below me know that?

It's "Titanoboa", not "Titanaboa". Yes I'm a Grammar Nazi.

This constricter is nothing conpared to anaconda

18 Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake

It's a rattlesnake they were already mentioned one of my favorite snakes

I think this is at least the second most deadly snakes in the world

More like 20th

More like 5th

19 Mozambique Spitting Cobra

It can spit venom more than 10 feet is the deadliest

20 Spitting Cobra

Should be in ten because more aggressive than sea snake

Deadly and evil, you may be blind if they spite on your eyes hahah!

So plbkjghrgeyujhvfrtyukjhgfr

21 Egyptian Cobra

They are quite poisonous, indeed. It's said that Cleopatra was bitten by one, which was the cause of her death.

22 Burmese Python

Every snake can choke an animal to death

Should be higher. This guy can squeez you to death


Constrictors, I have read are the most dangerous snakes in the world. The ones that get really large and heavy, like Burmese or reticulated Pythons, or anacondas, can easily crush the life out a grown man in a matter of minutes. There’s no anti-venom to protect you against having your body crushed to death, your organs destroyed, and all the air squeezed out of your lungs. Several years ago, I heard a story of a guy that was killed by his Burmese Python when attempting to feed it solo. The snake quickly overpowered him and that was all she wrote. They also did an experiment where they hooked a paramedic to a machine designed to replicate a constrictor on a man, utilizing the same pressure that is exerted by the snakes. They attached life monitoring devices to the man’s body and then began to squeeze. I’m less than 3 minutes, they had to disconnect because he was being crushed to death. It’s true that the snake has to try to kill you if they are constrictors as opposed to just ...more

23 Red Spitting Cobra
24 Fer de Lance

It has one of the worst snake venoms (if not the most dangerous) and the odds to survive a bite are around 11000. Plus it bites several times like the black mamba, the difference is it is more common and has more dangerous venom than the black mamba.

It strikes the over and over again just like a black mamba but it is more common and it's venom is more dangerous. It is also supposed to be the most dangerous animal is South America.

I like the name of this snake fur-dee-lance

It bites you you die in 4 minutes

25 Saw Scaled Viper

They have killed the most people, and are one of the most venomous snakes in the world. On top of that they are aggressive, unlike most snakes.

Saw Scaled Viper is deadly snake, my compare Saw Scaled Viper in girl of thriller Saw, Saw 2, Saw 3. Girl is be in mask Pick leather, and save to people and she is be alliance to Jig Saw, John Kramer. My compare to Saw Scaled Viper in girl name AMANDA.
