Snake doesn’t just attack people, they attack when they feel threatened and or disturbed. So here are the 10 deadliest snakes in the world.

    there is no way the mamba is #1. it has size, speed an reputation but the taipan is the #1 due to the toxicity of the venom.

    There are only 8, and if your going by the deadliest it is scientifically proven to be the Black Mamba. If we are going by the most Venomous then it would be the one you put in first. The Black Mamba is the fastest snake and can deliver many bites before leaving. If you get bitten you have a 100% chance of dieing.

    If you people are going by the Animal Planet as always being correct, you forgot the Asian Elephant, a very venomous animal with one long fang.
    Read and study before picking the snake that some other idiot had on his list. Bungarus caeruleus venom is by far the stronger when compared to Dendroaspis ploylepis. Lachesis muta can grow to over 12 foot, a 6 foot specimen is quite common in the bush. You also forgot to mention Echis carinatus, no list is complete with out it, and what about Pelamis platurus? and to add Dispholidus typus to any top ten most venomous list is asinine, compare its venom drop to drop with Micrurius fulvius and see what you get.
    My point being, don\’t stick your neck out and leave youself open to ridicule without first studying the subject. The animal channel has yet to be right on any subject concerning venom, at least in the programs I have watched, it\’s a good place to go when you need a laugh.

    In terms of human fatalities and many other factors, the most venomous species may not always be the most dangerous; for example, while the Russell\’s viper and the Saw-scaled viper have a significantly weaker venom than the inland taipan, they are responsible for far more deaths due to its wide distribution.

    will someone explain to me where is the green mamba, coral snake Russells Viper, eastern diamondback, in the list..
