Worlds Deadliest Snakes Fierce Snake



The Fierce snakes venom is at least 200 - 400 times more toxic than a common cobra. Just a single bite from this snake contains enough venom to kill 100 human adults or 150,000 mice.



The Fierce Snake also known as the Inland Taipan and Small Scaled Snake, is native to Australia and is regarded as one of the most venomous land snake in the world based on LD50 values in mice.

Its venom consists mostly of neurotoxins, which is a toxin that acts specifically on nerve cells, the common effect being paralysis, which sets in very rapidly.

The Fierce Snake is native to the arid regions of central Australia. Its range extends from the southeast part of the Northern Territory into west Queensland. The snake can also be found north of Lake Eyre and to the west of the split of the Murray River, Darling River, and Murrumbidgee River.


The Fierce Snake consumes mostly rodents, small mammals and birds. It kills with a single accurate bite, then retreats while waiting for the prey to die before returning to safely consume its meal.
