Snakes are some of the most lethal and dangerous reptiles on the planet. Some of them are non-lethal, while other can kill you with a spray of their poison. But, which snakes are actually the most dangerous in the world. We’ve compiled a list of the 12 snakes that you definitely don’t want to face in real life.
1. BLACK MAMBA
By far, the most dangerous snake on the planet. This snake has enough venom to kill preys in one bite. This is really concerning because the black mamba tends to attack with multiple bites in quick succession.
The rattlesnake is named after the sound it makes from its tail. The rattlesnake is commonly found in desert areas. The snake controls the amount of venom can inject, and if he decides to go max, you’re already dead.
3. DEATH ADDER
The name isn’t an exaggeration. They are experts in hiding and a single bite will paralyze and kill you in just under 6 hours.
The Viper looks like a happy and innocent snake in this picture, but don’t judge them on their looks. Their long fangs can go deep in your body to inject the venom. You’ll die in just a few hours from clotting and blood loss.
5. PHILIPPINE COBRA
Named after its native region, the Philippine Cobra doesn’t need to get close to you. It can spit its venom in your direction. This venom can cause severe respiratory failure in a couple of hours.
6. TIGER SNAKES
Their name should be enough to strike fear in your hearts. Found in Australia, this snake can kill you in just 30 minutes.
7. INLAND TAIPAN
Australia just has a collection of dangerous snakes and this includes the Inland Taipan. These snakes are usually calm, but they are lethal when they decide to strike their prey. Their bite will kill you in less than an hour.
8. BLUE KRAIT
The Blue Krait is an extremely beautiful and dangerous snake at the same time. It’s found in the tropical areas of Asia. The dangerous thing about them is that you can die even after you’ve been treated for their venom. Some antidote, huh….
9. EASTERN BROWN SNAKE
It’s just amazing how many dangerous snakes there are in Australia. The bite from an Eastern Brown isn’t always lethal, but it is up to the snake whether he’s trying to kill his prey or keep him alive.
10. BECHER’S SEA SNAKES
This is another snake that is highly calm and doesn’t show aggression that often. It doesn’t tend to bite people frequently and even when it does, it is because the snake feels scared and even then its a non lethal bite without venom. However, don’t take this snake lightly. A few milligrams of its poison can kills thousands.
11. FOREST COBRA
One of the biggest cobras in Africa, this snake is highly mobile and can even climb trees with ease. The worst part is that it is very easy to piss off this snake. Even if he’s slightly annoyed, he won’t feel reluctant to kill anything.
12. DESERT HORNED VIPER
This snake is truly a marvel to look at. They’re usually found in Northern Africa and Middle East and tend to like the desert sand. Their venom isn’t always lethal, but can cause a serious of severe symptoms.
