#2. Most of the most deadly snakes in the world. This is the Inland Taipan - world's most venomous snake, found only in Australia. "Its venom is 200-400 times more toxic than most rattlesnakes and 50 times as toxic as a cobra."
Inland Taipan / Oxyuranus microlepidotus - Beautiful Australia - Australia's Inland Taipan is considered to be the most venomous snake in the world. The venom from one bite is enough to kill 100 fully grown men. It is, however, very rare for humans to be bitten and in the few cases that have occurred, anti-venom treatment has been successful. Small rodents, mammals and birds are not so lucky.
All recorded bites by the inland taipan to date have been to snake handlers and no deaths have been documented. If the situation is handled calmly, it can take hours before a serious paralysing effect presents in an adult bitten by a taipan or other venomous Australian snake. Using immobilisation and bandage pressure, you can buy yourself hours, if not days to get assistance. It is better to stay put and send for a chopper than try to walk out of the bush when bitten.
