Venomous Snakes - CDC

So here were the top 10 most venomous snakes around the world! If ever you do encounter them, make sure they don’t bite you!

Cobras are the most generalized species of snakes that are regarded as poisonous. The list do contains creatures far more dangerous and poisonous than common cobras but this ‘guy’ here will impress you. The Philippine cobra can spit its neurotoxic venom as far as 3 meters to reach its target which can cause respiratory and cardiac functions to tumble and eventually respiratory paralysis to death. The cobra which is usually found in Luxon, Mindoro, Catanduanes and Masbate Islands of Philippines attacks only when you offend its integrity or family!

The Australian species are ruling our list today! Here is the Coastal Taipan considered one of the most deadliest snakes of the world with its fangs being larger than any other Australian snake ranging up to 13 centimeters. It injects 120mg of its haemotoxic venom which is capable of 12,000 Guinea pigs. The Coastal Taipan is also known as eastern Taipan and hence, is found all along the coast of Australia, Queensland and the island of New Guinea. The snake which is found to be morphologically and ecologically similar to the Black Mamba generally acquires abandoned animal burrows, discarded trash and sugarcane windrows.

Normally found in south Georgia, the Coral snake can potentially be extremely venomous. However, they are generally shy and slow to bite. Coral snakes account for fewer than 1% of venomous snakebites in the United States. Most people are bitten while intentionally handling the snakes. On top of all, Coral Snakes cannot strike quickly and must hang on for a brief period to achieve significant envenomation in humans. There have been no deaths from Coral Snake bites in the United States since anti-venom became available. These pretty snakes are rather short and easy to recognize with their distinctive alternating black, red and yellow bands.

If you have ever fished from a one-man boat easing along the sides of a river in the south you have probably encountered this. A snake is sunning on a low hanging limb above the river and here you come floating under in your boat trying to fish when the snake, suddenly startled, does what comes naturally in such a situation….. he drops off the limb intending to hit the water and swim to safety when you are startled by the snake falling into your boat. Now, who is headed for the river?

I hate it when adults teach children to be terrified of all snakes because they panic. It stays with most all their life. They should be educated on the subject We had a 50 year old man who couldn’t swim drown because a snake came too close.

Based on the Median lethal dose (LD 50 ) values in mice, the black mamba LD 50 from all published sources is as follows:

The Big Four are the four venomous snake species responsible for causing the most snake bite cases in South Asia (mostly in India). The Big Four snakes cause far more snakebites because they are much more abundant in highly populated areas. They are the Indian cobra ( Naja naja ), common krait ( Bungarus caeruleus ), Russell's viper ( Daboia russelii ) and the Saw-scaled viper ( Echis carinatus ). [62]

The Malayan krait ( Bungarus candidus ) is another dangerously venomous species of krait. In mice , the IV LD 50 for this species is 0.1 mg/kg. [88] Envenomation rate among this species is very high and the untreated mortality is 70%, although even with antivenom and mechanical ventilation the mortality rate is at 50%. [89]

If you are a long time reader of Listverse you will remember that we have previously had two lists on snakes: 10 lesser known venomous snakes and 10 unusual and amazing snakes . Surprisingly, we have not published a list of the most venomous snakes – and so, today, we fill that void with the following list. This is probably also a good time to point out (which we have done on a previous list) that something is venomous when it injects you with venom, and something is poisonous when it harms you through touch or eating.

Most species of Cobra would not make this list; however the Philippine Cobra is the exception. Drop for drop, its venom is the most deadly of all the Cobra species, and they are capable of spitting it up to 3 metres. The venom is a neurotoxin which affects cardiac and respiratory function, and can cause neurotoxicity, respiratory paralysis and death in thirty minutes. The bite causes only minimal tissue damage. The neurotoxins interrupt the transmission of nerve signals by binding to the neuro-muscular junctions near the muscles. The symptoms might include headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, dizziness, collapse and convulsions.

Found in Australia, the Tiger snake has a very potent neurotoxic venom. Death from a bite can occur within 30 minutes, but usually takes 6-24 hours. Prior to the development of antivenin, the fatality rate from Tiger snakes was 60-70%. Symptoms can include localized pain in the foot and neck region, tingling, numbness and sweating, followed by a fairly rapid onset of breathing difficulties and paralysis. The Tiger snake will generally flee if encountered, but can become aggressive when cornered. It strikes with unerring accuracy.
