So...the only differences are in the size of their body and their agressivity then..

Hey, here is the fact about poisonous snakes that I'd heard from Rob Bredl in 'Killer instinct' TV show.. :lol:
Land Taipan/desert Taipan poison is the fastest killer. They coagulate our erythrocytes.
2nd-----Eastern Brown
3rd-----Black Mamba
4th-----sea snakes
5th-----Death Adder/tiger snake
6th-----Sea Taipan

That's what I heard..

I only got the data from a mice. When a land Taipan bite a mice, it only need only 3-4 seconds for mice to die...when land Taipan's poison is tested on human blood, it takes less than 3 seconds for the RBC to coagulate...(the blood volume is +/- 5 mL and it's tested in vitro)

I am not familiar with some of those snake names. But I can say that water snakes, especially sea snakes are more dangerous and deadly compared to land snakes.
