This is yet another snake from the land of Australia and New Guinea. These snakes kill other snakes through ambush which makes them more poisonous and dangerous. They can produce 40 – 100 mg of venom in a single bite. Since the bite is one of the most dangerous bites in the world, it also has the potential of neurotoxin. The venom affects the neuro-system and reparatory system which can lead to paralysis.
