Snakes can be anywhere, from the arid deserts of Australia to the tropical backyards of Florida residents. Those who are unfortunate enough to be bitten by snakes have described agonizing snake bite symptoms such as difficulty breathing, vomiting and nausea; numbness, and organ failure. It’s a relatively painful way of dying. And even though we have developed anti-venom which has been responsible for the survival of many; if not treated, bites from venomous snakes can still claim lives. From Russell’s Viper to the Black Mamba, these are 10 of the world’s most venomous snakes.
