The Gaboon Viper
The Gaboon Viper is a large venomous snake from Africa. The Gaboon viper can grow up to 1.5 meters (4.9 ft) in length, but the average size is about 1 meter (3.3 ft).
The Gaboon viper’s habitat is rainforest and savanna regions of western Africa, south into Angola and Zambia, east to Kenya and Uganda; also northern Mozambique and Zimbabwe; southern Somalia through Tanzania across southern Africa as far as Swaziland, Mpumalanga province in South Africa, Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa – all these areas have been recorded as home to this snake species!
The Gaboon viper species has a reputation for being aggressive when provoked or attacked by humans or other animals that may pose some threat to its survival instinct – therefore it bites first before thinking twice! The venom of this snake could kill an adult human within 30 minutes if left untreated after being bitten by one of them! However there are antivenoms available which can be used effectively if you find yourself bitten by one such reptile during your travels through these areas where they reside often times without warning signs posted around their habitats so watch out for those too if planning on visiting any part of south africa at any time soon.”
The Horned viper
The Horned Viper is found in the Middle East and the Horn of Africa. It’s a venomous snake that you don’t want to mess with. If you see one, stay away!
The horned viper has a triangular head with horns on both sides of its head. Its body is gray or brown with spots that fade towards the tail end. This snake can reach up to two feet in length and six inches around at its thickest point (which is right behind those horns). The horned viper has an extremely potent venom which causes severe pain, tissue damage, swelling and bruising around your bite wound—and even death if medical treatment isn’t sought quickly enough!
The bushmaster is the largest venomous snake in the world and it’s also one of the most aggressive. The bushmaster is responsible for more human deaths than any other snake on Earth, so if you find yourself face-to-face with one, you probably won’t want to stick around for too long.
The bushmaster can grow to incredible lengths—it’s been reported at 8 feet (2.4 meters) long! The species’ unusual hunting style is also a little unnerving: they’re ambush hunters who will hide in wait until prey comes within striking distance; then they’ll lunge forward as quickly as possible and sink their fangs into their prey’s flesh before it can escape. If that weren’t bad enough, these snakes have another trick up their sleeves: they have heat sensors in their heads! So not only do they have an incredible sense of smell but they can also see heat signatures from predators or prey hiding behind bushes or rocks. That means even if you stay still enough to avoid detection by sight or sound, your body heat could give away your position and put you in danger of being attacked by this terrifying serpent!
The Cottonmouth snake
Cottonmouths are found in the southeastern United States. The name “cottonmouth” refers both to the snake, and to its habit of lying motionless and pretending to be a piece of floating debris until it strikes at an unsuspecting prey with its sharp teeth. Cottonmouths are also called water moccasins, as they are venomous snakes that often live near bodies of water. They have been known to bite humans if bothered too much or if they feel threatened—though their bites aren’t usually fatal, they will hurt quite a bit!
Cottonmouths are large snakes: adults can reach 30 inches long (70 centimeters) or more! They have wide heads with large jaws lined with sharp teeth; these jaws can open so widely that they look like gaping mouths when the cottonmouths hiss for defense. Cottonmouths’ bodies are dark brown or black with darker bands running down their back; these bands sometimes form crossbands on either side of their body as well as between each vertebrae bone along their spine (you may be able to see them through any part where there isn’t banding).
The diamondback rattlesnake
The Diamondback Rattlesnake is one of the most recognizable snakes in the world, and for good reason. It can grow up to 7 feet long and has a distinctive diamond-shaped pattern on its back. While this snake may look scary, it’s actually quite beneficial to humans since it helps keep rodent populations down.
Rattlesnakes are not only found in America—they live all over the world! The Australian mulga snake is one example of a rattlesnake who lives outside of North America. This reddish brown snake has black spots on its back and sides, but despite its appearance and name, it does not make any noise when threatened or provoked (unlike other rattlesnakes).
The mamba is the fastest snake in the world, capable of striking at up to 12 meters per second. This means they can hit prey twice as fast as a cobra and 40 times faster than most other snakes! As you can imagine, this makes them very dangerous to humans.
Like other snakes on this list, the mamba has both neurotoxic and hemotoxic venom. Unlike other snakes though, it doesn’t need to inject much into its victim for it to be deadly – just 0.002mg of its venom will kill an adult human!
Mambas are highly aggressive snakes that often attack even if they aren’t provoked (this is called “fearless aggression”). If threatened or cornered by humans, they will usually strike repeatedly until either they or their target dies from their bite.
The taipan is a venomous snake that lives in northern Australia. It’s a member of the Elapidae family, which includes cobras and other venomous snakes.
The taipan is one of the most venomous land snakes in the world and has caused numerous deaths over its long history on Earth. The snake was first described by naturalist George Shaw in 1802, who named it “taipan” after the Aboriginal word for “big” (butterfly) due to its large size relative to other members of its species. Although this deadly snake typically stays away from humans, it can still pose a threat if you happen upon one during your travels through Australia’s Northern Territory or Queensland regions.
The king cobra
The king cobra is a large and venomous snake, found in the forests of south and southeast Asia. It can grow to over 18 feet in length. This snake is a very aggressive species and is considered one of the most dangerous snakes in the world. It will attack when threatened or disturbed by humans, especially during mating season when it feels crowded in its territory.
The king cobra is also known as Ophiophagus hannah which means ‘snake-eating’ . This name describes this snake’s diet: it eats other snakes such as rat snakes (pythons), vipers and pit vipers that reside near it’s habitat. The king cobra can swim well using its long muscular tail to propel itself forward through water like a paddlewheel boat; however it prefers to climb trees instead because they provide better protection from predators than being exposed on land where there’s nothing but open grassland surrounding them!
The black mamba
The black mamba is the world’s fastest snake.
The black mamba is the world’s longest venomous snake.
The black mamba is the world’s largest venomous snake.
The black mamba is the world’s heaviest venomous snake.
The death adder, or Denison’s death adder (Acanthophis denisoni), is a species of venomous snake in the family Elapidae. The species is endemic to Australia and Papua New Guinea. As its name suggests, it is responsible for many deaths in both regions, but it is considered harmless to humans when not provoked. Death adders are part of the elapid snake family and are one of two types of venomous snakes found on mainland Australia; they are a medium-sized snake that grows up to 90 cm (35 in) long and has a distinctive rattle at the end of its tail when threatened or during mating seasons.
The death adder lives mostly around open grasslands with plenty of vegetation cover such as spinifex grasses where they hide amongst the plants during the day so they can hunt small rodents like mice or rats at night. When disturbed by humans who come too close these deadly creatures will often stand their ground by raising their heads off the ground while hissing loudly before striking out with their fangs which contain highly toxic glands capable of paralyzing small animals within minutes if not seconds!
Snakes are everywhere so we should all pay more attention to them.
Snakes are so ubiquitous that it’s easy to forget they’re there, but they are! And sometimes you have to deal with them. They live in our cities and forests, on the plains and in the hills. Snakes like to nestle into trees and under rocks, but if you want to know where some snakes hang out (not all of them!), we’ve got a list for you below:
- Asia: China, Japan, South Korea and Vietnam
- Australia: Northern Territory (Darwin), Queensland (Brisbane), Western Australia (Perth)
So now that we’ve established where most snakes live (and also how many kinds there are), here’s what I want to tell you about them: Pay attention to these animals because they deserve our respect more than any other animal! And please don’t kill them just because they’re annoying—they serve important functions as food sources for other animals like birds or fish! Also…they’re beautiful!
That’s the top 10 annoying snakes in the world. Take a look at this list again and tell us your favorite ones! We’re really curious to know 🙂
