Rattlesnakes can come with a variety of intricate markings, but all of these cousins share the rattle at the very tip of their tail. These predators typically hunt in the daytime hours. Usually the more rattles a snake has, the older it is. Though they can be fun to look at and hear, avoiding any area with rattler activity is best.
The last major group of venomous snakes in United States is the Copperhead Snake. This pit-viper is named for its orange-red coloring. They range half of USA and prefer dry or rocky areas. They usually frequent areas where they can blend easily into their surroundings. Copperheads are highly venomous and can be aggressive when frightened or hungry.
All of these snakes, and more, can be found ranging over the less populated areas of the country. It is not absolutely unheard of to find one of these reptiles slithering through a suburban neighbour hood, and so some knowledge on them important for anyone.

This article will highlight the 5 most venomous snakes in India. It is quite interesting to know that India is reported to have the most number of snake bites and related deaths in the world. In fact, 20% of people bitten by snakes in this country die.
The snakes in this region are aggressive and numerous- but four are considered to be the most dangerous.
They are living near the residential areas in India. These dangerous snakes may come inside the house at any time.
Look at this news: 60 poisonous snakes found in a school’s kitchen in India.
The first snake that makes the list is the King Cobra– due to movies and television, it is one of the most widely known and feared snakes. Generally, this species is a brown or green color with bands of black.
The majority of the time, the King Cobras try to avoid attacking other venomous snakes because they are highly intelligent, however, if hungry enough it will attack even members of their own species.
Their bite contains more venom per milligram than any other snake and without immediate medical attention, death is certain.
Indian Cobra is one of the most deadly snakes in this list. These snakes generally eat frogs and rats, so they like to live and seeking prey near residential areas.
The next snake on the list is the Indian Krait- whose venom is 16 times more powerful than venom from a cobra.
Their bites quickly cause the victim’s muscles to become paralyzed.
Their coloring is black or blue with bands of white and they have a very narrow head.
This snake is listed as the world’s second most deadly snake- with it being more active at night and enjoying to find refuge in tents, boots, and other dark places, the most common problem is people unintentionally stepping on them.
Number four of the most venomous snakes in India is Russell’s Viper– a snake that when cornered, coils tightly in a ball, and strikes at such a fast speed that the victim rarely has time to escape. Once a person is bitten, there is a severe pain at the site, followed by extreme swelling and bleeding. The victim’s blood pressure and heart rate drop. This snake is light brown with dark brown or black splotches that have a white or yellow border around them; it’s head is a triangle shape with a raised, rounded snout.
To complete this compilation is the Saw Scaled Viper, actually the smallest of these four snakes. It is a pale grey, red, green, or brown color with mostly white colored spots. These species are generally found in areas that are cultivated because they look for rats as a food source.
In the country of India, steps are being taken to improve mortality rates. With better medical treatment and anti-venom which are now available, the fatality percentage has decreased. However, because of continued trust in folk medicine and delayed time to seek proper medical attention, the number is still quite high.
In conclusion, out of the whole world, India is considered one of the most dangerous places because of the variety of poisonous snakes. The five most venomous snakes in India are the King Cobra, Indian Krait, Russel’s Viper, Indian Cobra and the Saw Scaled Viper. If you are living in India, do your best to stay away from these highly dangerous snakes.
Australia is actually known are having the most venomous snakes in the world; however, for whatever reason, most of the snakes on this continent are fairly shy in regards to humans and rarely seek to attack. With that in mind, snake bites are not very common in this part of the world- thankfully considering how dangerous the top 6 most venomous snakes in Australia are!
The first category contains the Taipan snakes, which can grow up to 11 feet long, and they live in dry plains or grasslands. What is astounding is the fact that it’s venom is 50 times more powerful than the cobras in India and with one bite, it has enough power to kill over 250,000 mice! With that to be said, there has never been a reported death caused by a Taipans snake– due in part to the development of an efficient and effective anti venom.
Next on the list are Brown snakes– one of the fastest types of snakes in this area which targets mice and rats which bring it close to populated areas and towns. Oddly enough, if you are in a close proximity with one of these snakes, they still would prefer to flee rather than bite- or they may just give a bite as a warning by not excreting any venom.
Black snakes are the third category of the most venomous snakes in Australia. These snakes have venom, that alone is not super toxic, however, they have the ability to inject such large quantities of venom that it can be fatal if left untreated. These snakes usually feed on frogs or small mammals and can grow to be as long as 7 or 8 feet.
Tiger snakes are dangerous because they generally live in populated areas and encounter people quite frequently. They usually give multiple warning signs before striking with a poisonous bite, they give a very impressive show by flattening their necks and giving a few mock strikes before a real one.
Death adders are mostly nocturnal animals that are very short, and thick with a horn raised above their eye. As opposed to most snakes, they do not normally try to escape from humans and so they are most often stepped on accidentally. They have the longest fangs out of any snake in the area, so their bites can be very dangerous.
To complete this list is the copperhead family. What differentiates this snake from others is it’s ability to function in colder temperatures; it is actually the only snake that you will see above the snow line. When these snakes are born, they already have the ability to strike with venom that is toxic enough to cause a lot of harm to humans.
In conclusion, even though there are six of the most venomous snakes in Australia, for the most part, they keep to themselves. However, if you do find yourself bitten, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately for the best case of survival.
