The Deadliest Snakes In The Worl

Snakes. That word alone is enough to give people the creeps. What with their long, slimy bodies, lack of legs, beady eyes and extensive amounts of venom – it’s easy to see why so many people are terrified of such a creature. That’s why we decided to compile a list of the deadliest snakes that roam around this Earth, check it out. You’ve been warned.

King Cobra

The King Cobra can be found all throughout Asia, and in the jungles of India. It also happens to one of the most famous snakes as it is the longest venomous snake in the world. While the King Cobra is deadly to humans, it tends to hunt other snakes, lizards, and rodents more so. Scarily enough, the King Cobra has enough neurotoxin in its venom to paralyze AND kill an entire elephant over the span of a few hours. Yikes. Additionally, if a bite is left untreated, the survival rate for humans is about 40 percent.

Caspian cobra

The Caspian cobra is also called the Central Asian cobra, Oxus cobra or Russian cobra, and you can find this scary fella in Central Asia. To make things worse, this species of snake is aggressive and bad-tempered. They do tend to avoid humans as much as possible, but they will turn fiercely aggressive if they feel threatened or cornered. And here’s the best part, it is the ~most~ venomous species of cobra in the entire world. How that’s the best part is beyond me, just try to avoid running into one, okay?

Also referred to as the Taiwanese krait or the Chinese krait, this particular snake is a highly venomous species found in central and southern China and in Southeast Asia. Indeed if untreated, the mortality rate is between 25 to 35% or 70–100%. Neither of these statistics sound appealing.

Black Mamba

An extreme amount of people have died all over Africa due to bites from a Black Mamba.

If untreated, a bite is almost 100 percent deadly, quite often death occurs in as little as 15 minutes.

Furthermore, you should know that the Indian Cobra has great stature because of their placement in Indian mythos and culture, quite often they are used by ‘snake charmers’. Additionally, if you are bitten by the Indian Cobra, you will likely feel paralyzing movements in your nerves, which leads to respiratory failure or a heart attack.

When untreated, you could die within a day, or suffer for two weeks straight before you eventually pass away.

Philippine Cobra

Ugh, this snake is creepy looking. The Philippine Cobra is THE most venomous and deadliest snake in the entire Cobra species, as it can spit its venom up to 10 feet in distance! How…lovely? Yeah, no, that’s not the right world. How mortifying. The venom in the Philippine Cobra will immediately alter your nerve workings, which affects your cardiac and respiratory systems within minutes.

Elephant Trunk Snake

This creepy, fat snake can be found all throughout the waters of Indonesia. It has the wrinkly, sagging skin of an elephant and can grow up to 10 feet in length, which is big enough to wrap a man and pull him underwater if he were to get caught unaware. Typically it doesn’t attack humans but that doesn’t mean it can’t kill one. Yeah, we’re not fans of this snake either.

Anaconda

Fun fact, the Anaconda is big enough to swallow a human whole. Just nope. What the anaconda lacks in venom, it makes up for in its enormous size. This snake even likes to wrap victims around the midsection and compress them until they are completely crushed or suffocated. After this is when it begins to swallow you whole.
