The most dangerous and largest species of snakes in the world

 

1- Tiger Snake

 

The Australian tiger snake is called by this name because its dark skin is yellow striped, and its length is from 100 cm to 250 cm.

 This snake is a deadly species where its venom can kill humans within thirty minutes.

The person who was bitten will be dead in less than twenty-four hours if he does not receive the antiserum.

The death rate before the discovery of the antiserum was about 70%, and the symptoms of its poison were nerve pain, especially in the neck and feet, with difficulty breathing.

The neurotoxin also leads to complete paralysis, knowing that the tiger snake is prone to escape, but it will use its venom if it feels there is no escape or if it is subjected to a failed attack by a human.

2- Death Adder

 

It was previously known as the deaf adder because it is less mobile and does not panic when a person approaches it, but in fact it is a malicious snake that feels movement but does not move with the intention of pouncing on its prey.

It is also considered one of the fastest snakes in swooping and stinging, and it possesses a deadly neurotoxin that leads to symptoms similar to the symptoms of a tiger snake bite.

The death snake lives mainly in Australia and Indonesia, and is characterized by a grayish-black color or striped in the form of circles and the end of its tail tends to white.

3- Taipan snake

 

As you can see, Australian vipers top the list of venomous snakes around the world, but the Australian Taipan has one of the most dangerous poisons on the face of the earth.

But at the same time, it is not considered the most deadly to humans for reasons related to the nature of its life, and this type of snake is divided into two subspecies; coastal, inland or wild.

Inland Taipan: The wild Taipan snake has the most powerful poison among the snakes in the world, as the amount of poison in one bite is enough to kill a million mice at once! That’s about 100 people per bite! The death rate for the person infected with the bite of this type of snake approaches 100% if he does not receive the anti-serum quickly, but despite this, this snake does not pose a great danger to humans because it tends to hide and live in remote places, so the coastal Taipan snake is considered more dangerous to humans. Although its venom is less powerful.

 

Coastal Taipan: It is the second version of the wild Taipan snake, and it has a deadly poison that is enough to kill 200,000 mice at once! It is considered more aggressive than the wild and causes high mortality in Australia, especially before the discovery of the anti-serum in the fifties of the last century.

4- Indian Cobra

 

It is also known as Naja Naja or Nag, and it can be found all over India where it is considered one of the most deadly snakes in India.

It is a medium-sized venomous snake with a length of 1.8 to 2.2 meters, and feeds mainly on rats and mice, and its poison can be used in the pharmaceutical industry.

5- The King Cobra

 

The longest venomous snake in the world, with a length of about six meters, is also known as (Ophiophagus Hannah) and its venom can kill an elephant within a few hours.

The king cobra is distinguished by its speed of rush during the attack and its famous defensive stance. King cobra snakes also live in India, China and the Philippines.

6- Black Mamba

 

About 120 mg of deadly neurotoxin per bite, with a terrible ability to deliver twelve consecutive blows to its opponent, in addition to a speed of more than 20 km / h.

This is the black mamba that lives mainly in Africa, where the death rate is close to 100% of those infected with this snake bite and it is very aggressive.

Its poison leads to double vision and increased secretion of saliva with scum, and then paralysis and coma if the victim does not receive immediate treatment.

The biggest snakes in the world

 

Squeezing or holding snakes do not rely on venom, but rather on strangling the victim and smashing its bones, although there are more types of venomous snakes.

Which live in populated areas, but did not take the share that the contemporary snakes took from the movies, who among us does not remember the story of the giant anaconda movie?!

Together we will learn about the three most famous types of contemporaneous snakes and the largest snake in the world.

The most dangerous and largest species of snakes in the world

1- Anaconda is the heaviest snake in the world

 

The length of the giant anaconda ranges between 6 and 7.5 meters, and it is believed that it reaches more than that, while its circumference is about 30 cm, and the weight of the anaconda is about 230 kg, making it the heaviest snake in the world.

Had it not been for some of the discoveries that we will mention, it has maintained the status of (the heaviest) despite the intense competition that entered it as the longest snake in the world, but to this day the controversy is still raging about who is the longest.

This is because of the comparison between free-living snakes in their environment and captive ones.

The anaconda is characterized by its ability to prey on large and predatory animals such as crocodiles, as it wraps around its prey and performs a muscle contraction that leads to suffocation or crushing of the victim.

Then the anaconda swallows its victim at once with the ability to open the jaws to accommodate the entire body of the victim without chewing or cutting, and the anaconda can distinguish its victims by sensing movement in addition to its ability to sense heat.

Note that the anaconda is native to South America, and the swamps and forests are the ideal environment.

2- Medusa, the world’s longest snake in the Guinness Book of Records

 

In October 2011, the Medusa conchor snake was recorded as the longest snake in the world in the Guinness Book of Records, with a length of 767 cm, and a weight of 158.8 kg.

It is the most powerful competitor to the anaconda in terms of length, but what happened in April 2016 destroyed the dreams of Medusa and anaconda.

Where a giant snake was discovered in Malaysia, it reached eight meters in length and weighed up to 250 kg, but unfortunately this snake died after only three days of capturing it, and despite that it is not the longest at all.

3- The Reticulated Python is the longest snake found so far

 

Some believe that anacondas are able to grow more than we know, and others believe that Medusa recorded in the Guinness World Records in 2011 is the longest undisputed.

But what will they say about the Reticulated Python?! Where one of these snakes was discovered in Indonesia in 1912, which reached a length of more than ten meters.

This snake is also distinguished by the way it incubates its eggs, where it lays a large amount of eggs that may reach 100 eggs and wraps its long body over the eggs until they hatch and this may take 80 days.

4- Titanoboa, the largest snake that ever lived on our planet

 

Scientists believe that the extinct Titanoboa is the largest snake that lived on earth, as fossils were discovered in a coal mine in Colombia indicating the presence of this huge snake that reaches a length of about 12-15 meters.

And its weight exceeds a ton, making it the longest snake known to the Earth and lived more than 58 million years ago.

In conclusion…. Reading about snakes may be somewhat interesting, but these creatures will remain among the most terrifying animals for humans, with their enormous ability to kill them. Share with us your experiences with snakes!
