The Top Ten
Oh my goodness! This list is really scary. I remember when I was a child I couldn't even see a picture of a snake without getting scared. Now I can see a picture quite easily, but of course only the picture! Snakes really creep the hell out of me.
Although the Belchers Sea snake has a lower LD50, it isn't on the list. So I have to vote for the Inland Taipan. Its neurotoxin is the deadliest out of all snakes, and it has a coagulant to have a one-two punch. Bleeding while suffocating doesn't sound fun.
Undeserving number one. This thing has nothing on the Black Mamba, don't kid yourselves.
The toxicity of this snake is too much high. And the anti venom is really expensive.V 1 Comment
You know this snake can go about 12 miles per hour, right? And it has venom that if left untreated will kill you in an hour or two. This should at least be ranked number 2.
This is probably the DEADLIEST snake on earth, but not the most venomous. Its fast acting venom can kill in less than 15 minutes, and the toxicity of its cardiotoxins/neurotoxins cause a fast death. Not to mention the amount of venom injected as well as its speed. It is the fastest snake in the world.
The Black Mamba is said I think to have the fastest strike in the world but mostly lives in trees
Being able to slither faster than most humans AND deadly venom should get it a higher spotV 1 Comment
