Ah, venomous snakes. They bring great fear into the hearts of people, as they should. These things can kill you with ease!
 
#10: Rattlesnake

The rattlesnake is the only one on the list that you actually could encounter in North America, with the Eastern Diamondback being the most venomous rattlesnake you might get to meet. Part of the Pit Viper family, rattlesnakes can strike over a distance of up to 2/3rd of their entire body length like a boss!
Once bitten, effective treatment may be able to save your life, but you’ll still have some scarring most likely (which could lead to losing a limb). When a rattlesnake bites you and injects you with its venom, the result will be destruction of tissue, degeneration of organs, and disruption of blood clotting. It will become difficult to breathe and you may become paralyzed as you drool and suffer the consequences of massive hemorrhaging.
The most dangerous rattlesnakes are young ones, because they’re often not yet able to control the amount of venom injected when biting. Untreated rattlesnake bites are usually fatal, but with antivenin applied in time your chances of dying drop under 4%!
 
#9: Death Adder

Found in Australia and New Guinea, this snake likes to add death to the list of things to do for other snakes. It even ambushes and kills some of the other snakes on this list! The Death Adder has the quickest strike of any snake on the planet with 0.13 of a second.
Left untreated, a Death Adder bite is one of the most dangerous in the world with 40-100mg of venom injected on average. They hit you with a bosslike neurotoxin that causes paralysis and respiratory failure, which can cause death in 6 hours! Antivenin can treat a Death Adder bite, but without treatment you have a 50% chance of dying.
 
#8: Viper

Vipers can be found throughout the world, but usually regarded as the most venomous is the Saw Scaled Viper from the Middle East and Centra Asia.
They are nocturnal and mostly active after rains. Vipers are extremely fast and when they bite, you can prepare for a rough night! The pain will start at the bite, which will blister up like crazy, and then swelling will spread from there. Grab a bucket, because you might begin throwing up uncontrollably as your face swells to the size of a big-ass watermelon. Severe pain will be experienced for 2-4 weeks, during which you can die from septicaemia, respiratory or cardiac failure.
 
#7: Philippine Cobra

This species of cobra can spit its venom up to 3 meters (10 feet) and it’s the most potent cobra venom the world has ever seen! While the bite only causes minimal tissue damage, the neurotoxic venom can kill you in 30 minutes! Before you die, your symptoms may include headache, that pukey feeling, actually puking, uncontrollable diarrhea, convulsions and anything relating to those issues. No thanks.
 
#6: Tiger Snake

While death from its insanely potent neurotoxic venom usually takes 6-24 hours, it can also happen after just 30 minutes! Left untreated, you have a 60-70% chance of dying from a Tiger Snake bite. Luckily they won’t usually attack unless you corner them, because they prefer slithering away to freedom over killing humans. Their striking accuracy is something you don’t want to experience firsthand, because they NEVER miss!
 
#5: Blue Krait

Even if antivenin is administered in time, the bite from a Blue Krait is so venomous that 50% of TREATED bites are still fatal. Left untreated, a bite from a Blue Krait has an 85% mortality rate.
Kraits hunt other snakes and they are cannibals. Kraits eat other Kraits! They are nocturnal hunters and become much more aggressive at night as a result.
The Blue Krait’s venom is 16 times more potent than that of a Cobra. A neurotoxin, it quickly induces paralysis that turns into cramps, tremors and spasms. Death tends to occur after 6-12 hours.
 
#4: Taipan

What a surprise! Another one from Australia. If you get hit with a Taipan bite, you’ll be dead in an hour unless you can get some antivenin. Your blood will clot, which blocks arteries and veins, but the venom of the Taipan also has neurotoxic qualities that will wreck your nervous system. It’s a very similar snake to the Black Mamba (which you’ll meet in a sec).
There are no known survivors of untreated Taipan bites.
 
#3: Eastern Brown Snake

Another Australian snake. And guess what? This one likes to live along the major population centers of Australia. How fun! Did we mention it’s extremely venomous and just 1/14,000 of an ounce of its venom is enough to murder a person into the ground?
If you piss this snake off, it WILL chase and bite you repeatedly. And it’s fast! The venom of the Eastern Brown Snake is both hematoxic and neurotoxic, which means it will annihilate your bloodstream AND your nervous system.
They react to movement. If you ever encounter one in the wild (NOPE!), stand still.
 
#2: Black Mamba

This snake’s bite is less pleasant than sword-fighting Beatrix Kiddo (codename Black Mamba a.k.a. The Bride) from the Tarantino movie ‘Kill Bill’.
The Black Mamba can be found across the continent of Africa and strikes with deadly precision. It is highly aggressive and the fastest land snake on Earth, reaching speeds of up to 20km/h (12mph) as it hunts you down to end you.
The ferocious Black Mamba can strike up to 12 times in a row, with each bite delivering enough venom (100-120mg on average, but up to 400mg) to kill 10-25 adult humans. Without immediate access to antivenin, death is all but certain after a bite from this snake.
After going crazy with confusion, you’ll begin to foam out of your mouth and nose, while running a fever and losing control over your muscles. You’ll have stomach aches of world peace as you begin to throw up everywhere and go into shock. Paralysis will lead to your death.
Depending on how severe the bite is, you’ll die after 15 minutes to 3 hours.
 
#1: Fierce Snake

The Fierce Snake is also known as the Inland Taipan, but Fierce Snake sounds way more boss. It has the most toxic venom of any land snake on the planet. With one bite yielding up to 110mg of venom, it can kill 100 people! WHAT?! It’s 50 times as venomous as a Cobra.
Luckily this snake isn’t very aggressive at all and no deaths due to a Fierce Snake bite have ever been recorded. If you do manage to make one of these bite you, you’ll be dead in 45 minutes. Just in case you were wondering.
 
And with that, we’re out of here. On a related note: NOPE! NOPE! NOPE!
