Yes you are correct I am running purely on memory, 60 seconds? must of took a direct hit to the carotid artery?

Geographic and Textile are the 2 to watch out for I have seen these snails on the Barrier reef and left them well alone not really willing to take the risk of what end it fires from.

It’s a wonder there have not been more reported deaths by cone shells as I can see the curiosity and the overwhelming urge to pick one up because they are so brilliantly marked.

Of course snakes don't bother humans. If you leave them alone, then they'll leave you alone. They aren't scary monsters trying to eat you alive!

0.27 what? Grams? Micrograms? Tons? or Chocolate units?

Most deadly snake

Postby Blackmambasurvivor » Wed Sep 20, 2006 5:00 pm

I am sorry to tell you but black mambas are not found in the U.S, They can be found in Southern Africa, They are also not the most piosonist snakes in the world, But they are the most Deadly.
Why? you may Ask.
1. They produce and inject the most pioson in one single bite
2. They are the most aggresive snake in the world
3. They stike repeadedly and can inject the same amount of pioson again
4. They are THE WORLDS Fastest snake, and Fastest striking snake.
5. They have a kill ratio of 99,9 %
6. They can strike you at a distance of 2,5 m striaght into your Face
7. They kill the most people year round.
8. Most bite victems die within 2 min, bacause of shock and hart failure.

But they are not the most piosonist snake in the world, Their pioson is rank in the top 5 most piosonist.



So now you can see why it is the most deadly.

I have a question..... In the Philippines there was a report of a venomous snake.. it has slender long body, and it can lift its body like a cobra(but it is not a cobra), it has a strong venom and sometimes it spits the venom to the prey. Some residents described them as snakes with legs. These snakes were known to be fast crawlers because according to them, it can chase people and other bigger animals.

The Most Venomous Snake In The World

Postby lkirkwood » Sun Sep 24, 2006 3:52 pm

The most venomous snake in the world is the Fierce Snake a.k.a (Inland Taipan) but I personally wouldn't regard it as the most dangerous as it is very docile.

I would consider the Black Mamba as the most dangerous as it will become very aggressive if it fears for its life and see the only option as striking out, it also has a large striking range. I would also consider the eastern brown snake as another highly dangerous snake as it can be very aggresssive and is probably the 2nd most venomous in the world.

One snake I would advise anyone including experts not to pick up or tail in the Death Adder as it is one of the fastest striking snakes in the world and due to its size is very hard to tail.

Snakes

Postby lkirkwood » Thu Sep 28, 2006 3:34 pm

The Fierce snake is the most venomous dustfinger but I regard the Black Mamba as the most dangerous as in its native Africa it and people come into conflict as most of the people there make a living of their crops and were there is crops there is mice or rats and were there is mice or rats there is snakes. Also there is no such thing a a dry bite with a black mamba and it is one of the quickest snakes in the world. It used to have a 100 percent death rate in Africa before antivenom was created for it.

"@Andrew
Whoa..you're cruel man..but, I'll support you..

Oh yes, snakes shot a neurotoxins right?? I read in the book and found that Taipans' neurotoxins are the strongest.. "
pn page 2...wich book is tht? hehe

AND THIS IS WAT I GOT FROM WIKIPEDIA
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Mamba

Even though its venom is not the most toxic gram for gram, due to its aggressive nature and large quantity of venom delivered as well as its speed, it is widely regarded as the most dangerous snake in the world.

hehe....is it of any help.....i still have no comments on wich is the most poisonous snnake...as i have jus started to lyk snakes wen it once entered my house...a green snake (those wich hang around on trees! am i rite?)

Recent commentor the most venomous snakes in the world is the Fierce snake (Inland Taipan) and the snake in your tree in your garden that crawled into you house is not likely to be venomous but could give a painful bite so don't attemtp to free handle.
