  • Taipan on Random Scariest Types of Snakes in the World

    (#1) Taipan

    Size: 5.9' to 8.2' long (1.8 to 2.5 meters).

    Location: Arid, central locations in Australia.

    Distinguishing Features: Most are dark tan in color, but some individuals have been found that are a light-green, which may be due to seasonal changes. It has a round snouted head and has relatively short fangs (3.5 to 6.2 mm long).

    Why You Should Be Scared: When it comes to snake venom lethality, look no further than the Inland Taipan. These snakes are the most venomous in the world. It has the most toxic venom of all reptiles and a single bite's worth of venom can kill up to 100 adult humans. An untreated bite will likely kill someone within as little as 30-45 minutes, so immediate treatment is a must. 

  • Boomslang on Random Scariest Types of Snakes in the World

    (#10) Boomslang

    Size: 3.1' to 6' (1 to 1.8 meters).

    Location: Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Distinguishing Features: Bright green scales intermixed with smaller, black scales. Females are sometimes brown in color.

    Why You Should Be Scared: Boomslang translates from Afrikaans to "Tree Snake" and these snakes are all over trees in Africa. Their venom is deadly, but treatment with antivenom is highly effective. Untreated, their venom can kill, but their bites rarely result in a mortality.

  • King Cobra on Random Scariest Types of Snakes in the World

    (#3) King Cobra

    Size: 10.4' to 13.1' long (3.18 to 4 meters).

    Location: Primarily India and Southeast Asia.

    Distinguishing Features: King Cobras have a distinctive hood surrounding their heads, making them look significantly wider than they actually are. Their bodies are typically dark olive or brown in color with black and white crossbands.

    Why You Should Be Scared: Their venom consists of neurotoxins, which can be fatal for humans. The venom targets a victim's central nervous system and typically results in a fatality rate of around 50-60%, making it the deadliest of all the cobras.

  • Sea snake on Random Scariest Types of Snakes in the World

    (#9) Sea snake

    Size: 3.9' to 9.8' (1.2 to 2.9 meters).

    Location: While all snake species can swim, sea snakes prefer an ocean environment for most of their lives. They inhabit marine environments consisting of warm coastal waters from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific.

    Distinguishing Features: They do not possess gills as many believe, but do have a laterally compressed body, which gives them an eel-like appearance.

    Why You Should Be Scared: Sea snakes are among the most venomous species of snake in the world. They are deadly, but only if they inject venom, which is relatively rare. Their venom causes paralysis, which results in an inability to breathe and swallow.

  • Platycheirus scutatus on Random Scariest Types of Snakes in the World

    (#7) Platycheirus scutatus

    • Platycheirus scutatus

    Size: 3' to 6' long (1 to 3 meters).

    Location: Southern regions of Australia and Tasmania.

    Distinguishing Features: There are numerous subspecies of Tiger Snakes, but they all possess bands of bright colors against a darker scale color. This distinctive feature has helped give them the name Tiger Snake.

    Why You Should Be Scared: Tiger Snake neurotoxins are incredibly deadly. If a bite is left untreated, it will result in death between 40% and 60% of the time. Tiger Snakes are somewhat rare, which has granted them protected status. Throughout most of Australia, it is illegal to kill or even injure one—making them something you just want to avoid at all costs.

  • Coral snake on Random Scariest Types of Snakes in the World

    (#6) Coral snake

    Size: 3' to 5' (0.9 to 1.5 meters).

    Location: Most of North America.

    Distinguishing Features: Most species have a distinctive color pattern of bands along their bodies. Their red, black, and yellow bands are similar to a nonvenomous species of snake, which has given rise to the rhyme, "Red touches yellow, kill a fellow. Red touches black, friend of Jack."

    Why You Should Be Scared: Their venom is highly deadly, but they rarely bite humans. Coral Snakes are naturally reclusive so a bite usually occurs when a human is standing near one and doesn't realize it. When a bite does occur, they are almost always fatal, which has a lot to do with there being a shortage of their antivenom. If left untreated, a bite will almost always kill a full-size human in a matter of hours.
