10 most dangerous snakes in the world

1. taipan

Considered the most venomous snake. Just think about it! This snake is capable of sending over 100 people to the forefathers in a matter of seconds in one fell swoop. Unlike other representatives, the taipan attacks the victim not with one, but with a whole series of bites (up to 10). Its poison is so toxic that the victim simply does not have time to show the slightest resistance. Remember that the cruelest snake always attacks first and therefore if you are "lucky" to meet this beauty, then it is better to postpone the photo and video shooting and immediately run away.

2. tiger snake

No less dangerous than the previous representative. Possesses the most powerful poison, which is enough to kill over 400 people. The snake's venom acts on the victim's nervous system and paralyzes it. When the poison reaches the nerve centers that control breathing and heartbeat, the victim dies. However, don't worry too much! The tiger snake is called one of the most cowardly. They will never crawl into the house and in general, will try not to intersect with people, but if you still meet on their way, then all that remains is to pray because there is no antidote.

7. Eastern asp

The most deceptive venomous snake. The insidiousness of the bite of an asp is that a person feels only a slight prick, as if from a pin. The poison will act with lightning speed and within 10 minutes without medical assistance, a person may die. This snake is also called "harlequin" for its bright attractive color. Aspid often hides underground, leaving only a bright tail on the surface, and thus causes a desire to get it and see what is there. And that is a deadly mistake!

8. Black Mamba

In addition, they are unusually cruel and aggressive - in one attack, the Black Mamba can inflict up to 12 bites. Without the introduction of serum with antivenom, almost 100% of cases end in death, occurring within 20-30 minutes.

9. African boomslang

It is only through the fault of a person that the boomslang becomes aggressive and attacks. In 9 out of 10 cases, when meeting a person, the snake simply tries to hide. But if she still has to attack, then the outcome will be sad. As soon as boomslang poison enters the bloodstream, it immediately begins to destroy cells. Paralysis will come instantly, followed by sudden death. The story of the death of the famous zoologist Carl Paterson Schmidt is connected with the bite of this snake. In 1957, during an expedition, he tried to catch an African boomslang and study it: he grabbed a snake, and she was able to dodge and bite the zoologist's hand. Dying, the scientist until the last moment kept records in which he noted his condition.
