17 Most Dangerous and venomous snakes in the world

Cover Image For List : 17 Most Dangerous And Venomous Snakes In The World

Snakes are found across the world. Among over 3,000 species of snakes, around 600 are venomous. Thankfully, the chances of running into such dangerous snakes are low. Below, you can find the list of the most dangerous and venomous snakes in the world. These snakes live primarily in tropical regions- North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally around 54 lakh, people are bitten each year and around 81,000 to 1,38,000 people die each year because of snake bites; many amputations and other permanent disabilities are caused by it. Hence naturally, few animals strike as much fear into the general public as snakes. However, they are creatures who just want to stay aloof and if left in peace, they are not likely to strike and so, it’s always better to avoid these creatures.
