Rattlesnakes receive their name from the rattle located at the end of their tails, which, when shaken, makes a loud rattling noise that deters 
predators or serves as a warning to passers-by.
Rattlesnakes are native to USA.
Because of this snake's bite more than 5000 people are get killed every year in united states.

9Death adder

Death adder snakes are native to Australia.
The common death adder venom contains highly toxic neurotoxin which can cause paralysis or even death. It can deliver the fastest strike among 
all venomous snakes recorded in Australia. Human death can occur within six hours after the bite.


The Viperidae (vipers) are a family of venomous snakes found all over the world, except in Antarctica, Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar, 
Hawaii, various other isolated islands, and north of the Arctic Circle. All have relatively long, hinged fangs that permit deep penetration and 
injection of venom.

7Philippine cobra

As name it says that this cobra from Philippine.
The venom of the Philippine cobra is a potent postsynaptic neurotoxin which affects respiratory function and can cause neurotoxicity and 
respiratory paralysis, as the neurotoxins interrupt the transmission of nerve signals by binding to the neuromuscular junctions near the 
muscles. Research has shown its venom is purely a neurotoxin, with no apparent necrotizing components and no cardiotoxins.

6Tiger Snake

Tiger snakes are a type of venomous snake found in southern regions of Australia, including its coastal islands and Tasmania. These snakes are 
highly variable in their colour.
Tiger snake venoms possess potent neurotoxins, coagulants, haemolysins and myotoxins. Symptoms of a bite include localized pain in the foot and 
neck region, tingling, numbness, and sweating, followed by a fairly rapid onset of breathing difficulties and paralysis. In a study, the 
untreated mortality rate from its bites is reported to be between 40 and 60%.

5Black Mamba

The black mamba (Dendroaspis polylepis) is a venomous snake endemic to sub-Saharan Africa. It takes its common name not from the colour of its 
scales, but from the interior of its mouth, which is inky-black.
The venom of the black mamba is highly toxic, potentially causing collapse in humans within 45 minutes or less from a single bite. Without 
effective antivenom therapy, death typically occurs in 7–15 hours.


The taipans are snakes of the genus Oxyuranus in the elapid family. They are large, fast-moving, highly venomous, and endemic to Australasia.
The venom is known to paralyze victim's nervous system and clot the blood, which then blocks blood vessels and uses up clotting factors.

3Blue Krait

This species has broad black bands across a white body, sometimes with yellowish patches. The ventrals are whitish while the head is completely 
dark in colour, differentiating it from the similar looking banded krait. It feeds primarily on snakes and skinks in the wild. Of the ‘Big Four’ dangerous snakes found in India, the Common Krait is the most venomous. Its venom – a powerful neurotoxin – is supposed to be 
fifteen times more virulent than that of the Common Cobra, making it probably the most venomous snake in Asia and earning it a rank among the 
deadliest snakes of our planet!

2Eastern Brown Snake

The eastern brown snake (Pseudonaja textilis), often referred to as the common brown snake, is a species of venomous elapid snake of the genus 
Pseudonaja. This snake is considered the world's second most venomous land snake based on its LD50 (Lathal dose)value (SC) in mice.
It is native to Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia.

1Inland taipan

The inland taipan is considered the most venomous snake in the world; based on the median lethal dose value in mice, its venom, drop for drop, 
is by far the most toxic of any snake – much more so than even sea snakes– and it has the most toxic venom of any reptile when tested on human 
heart cell culture.Unlike most snakes, the inland taipan is a specialist mammal hunter so its venom is specially adapted to kill warm-blooded 
species.It is estimated that one bite possesses enough lethality to kill at least 100 full grown men, and, depending on the nature of the bite, 
it has the potential to kill someone in as little as 30 to 45 minutes if left untreated. It is an extremely fast and agile snake that can 
strike instantly with extreme accuracy, often striking multiple times in the same attack, and it envenoms in almost every case.
