Re: Top 10 deadliest snakes in the world

HMM this has always been a topic of debate, you are going by venom toxicity?
The lack of antivenin in remote locations and frequency of contact actually result in more fatality's in some geographical areas.
But I like how you mention the varying ways people determine which is deadliest
All in all very nice!!

Re: Top 10 deadliest snakes in the world

P.S. I would have added the fact corals are rear fanged and bites rarely result in envenomation

Good link still. Although I agree. The 'deadlest snakes' are a matter of opinion.

Actually corals are rear fanged and very small. They would have to get a hold of an small area like the webbing between the fingers to be able to envenomate. they "unlike the majority of venomous snakes" cant puncture shoes or even get a large area of skin. As far as I know every Coral envenomation has been to the hands of the victim as a direct result of being handled.
Accidentally stepping on one would not gerenrly result in a dangerous bite unlike the rattlers and moccasins.

Re: Top 10 deadliest snakes in the world

This is not to say any venomous snake should be taken likely but it reference to it being listed as one of the top 10 deadliest snakes,
Of all the North American venomous snakes the coral is the least likely to envenomate due to the fact they are quite shy and secretive and the infrequency of contact.

I did not mean to imply they do not envenomate just that the rest of the North American venomous snakes are more likely to do so.

Coral snakes are proteroglyphs not ophistoglyphs

They are front-fanged. Just like the cobra and mamba--since they are all Elapids...

This I agree with whole heartedly. The most toxic snakes are also debatable as the tests are done on mice. Not all snake venomous are designed for mice.

The deadliest snake is the animal attached to one of your limbs.

That would be my pick....

Oh...and, according to Lewis Grizzard, there is only one kind of snake: The Dreaded Copper-Headed Water Rattler....

Re: Top 10 deadliest snakes in the world

People kill people.. more than anything else.
.
Deadly venomous snakes should be respected.. yet here in the US and most elsewhere you are much more likely to be hospitalized or killed by any number of everyday things.. not snakes, venomous or otherwise.
.
Anybody waking up tomorrow and worrying about being envenomated and killed by a Coral snake or whatever should get Prozac.. Snakes don't lay around waiting for a chance to bite and kill people.. most every snake I meet in nature, including venomous snakes, are as curious about me as I am of them.. and I believe that to be the rule, not the exception.
.
Oh! which is the most deadly snake'!? .. almost none are potentially dangerous or deadly until we choose to interact with them. Worrying right now about deadly or dangerous snakes? Call your analyst and take a pill! and maybe find a new hobby.
.

.
Have a great week!

I don't worry about non-venomous, but you'll notice I make no mention of having hots because I don't want to deal with the added risk. I don't go hunting them in the wild, either, because I'd rather not encounter them in the wild...and I always watch where I put my hands and feet when I'm out and about in the woods and such. I grew up around copper heads and moccasins and have a very healthy respect for them.

As for my snakes...I also respect them and work carefully with them with an eye toward my safety and theirs.

Nice rattler. I would have simply moved the other way.
