Venomous snakes are species of the suborder Serpentes that are capable of producing venom, which they use for killing prey, for defense, and to assist with digestion of their prey. The venom is typically delivered by injection using hollow or grooved fangs, although some venomous snakes lack well-developed fangs.
There are thousands of snake species across the globe. In most cases, poisonous snakes come in white or yellow color.
Speaking about toxicity, snake’s venom and other toxins’ strength is measured using the LD50 test, or lethal dos 50%.
There are many families of snakes. The Colubridae, Elapidae, Viperidae, Crotalinae, and Viperinae are some of the most poisonous snakes.
And if you want to rank them, the inland taipan is considered the most venomous snake. COmonly known as the fierce snake, its venom consists of taipoxin, a mix of neurotoxins, procoagulants, and myotoxins. The venom causes hemorrhaging in blood vessels and muscle tissues.
