Corretion. Question number seven should read;
This "venomous snake eats snakes including venomous snakes. This is the longest "venomous" snake in the world. What is it?
1. eastern diamondback 2. Black mamba 3. king brown or costal Taipan i'm not sure but both are large 4. Australia 5. Gaboon viper 6. fer-de-lance or bushmaster are the only 2 i could think of 7. king cobra
I honestly don't know the answers to many of these. (Growing up outside of North or South America doesn't help much.)
However I do have an eighth question to add that I don't see here:
8: What is the most venomous snake in the world, and where is it found?
If you hunt,camp,pond fish in Fl.we have (5)Venomous Snakes, always wear Snake Boots. The life you save may be YOURS!
Okay, I'm guessing on most of these.
1. Western Diamondback
2. Black mamba
3. Sea snake
4. India (certainly not Ireland)
5. King Cobra
6. Feur de Lance or the Racer - I believe they imported mongoose?
7. Can't be any snake longer than an Anaconda
Quinton, in answer to your question number eight. The only way to find out the world’s deadliest snake would be to get six identical clone sheep that were same DNA. Get syringes filled with the same amount of poison from each deadly snake, and have poison go into the sheep’s body at the same time. Have computers with wires monitoring each sheep to see which one dies first.
Two different sources, the Queensland Museum in Australia and the television show called the Crocodile Hunter with the late Steve Irvin picked the Inland Taipan (aka Fierce Snake) as the worlds deadly. Others on the internet have picked the Black Mamba, the Russell’s viper, a certain sea snake, King Cobra and others. Nobody really knows the answer to that question unless they do my clone sheep test.
I know the venomous snakes native to where I hunt, fish or camp. I know the venomous snakes of Africa and SE Asia. (If it crawls, KILL IT.) Largest venomous snake in NA would be the diamond back rattler, whether eastern or western is debatable. The snake I would least like to be bitten by is a cottonmouth moccasin. Nasty varmints, with filthy infectious stuff in their mouths, and usually inject all their poison when biting.
Tree- What is that fifth venomous snake? I'm only aware of rattlesnakes, copperheads, cottonmouths and coral snakes?
I think the most venomous snake in the world is Belcher's sea snake in the Indian Ocean, and the most venomous land snake is the Inland Taipan (Australia).
The Black Mamba (Africa)is the fastest snake in the world, and very aggressive, which probably makes it the most dangerous snake in the world.
crm3006 - Actually, there are six venomous snakes in Florida, if you count the three varieties of rattlesnakes separately: the Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake, the Timber rattlesnake and the Pygmy rattlesnake.
OK- I am by rattlesnakes like I am the SE Asia and African snakes. If it rattles, it is a rattlesnake.
Its great to see that yall know so much about snakes. Im a snake lover all my life. They are awesome animals.
What U.S. state or states doesn't have any venomous snakes?
What U.S. state or states has the most venomous snakes?
Alaska and Hawaii do not have venomous snakes. Well not indigenous anyway.
I was in the Army in Georgia and they had them all there: Copperheads, Eastern Diamondback, Cottonmouth, timber rattler, and Coral snakes. Probably had pygmy rattler too.
I read something about rattlesnakes recently that I find somewhat disturbing. It seems that in more densely populated parts of this country, rattlesnakes are still evolving, with a survival trait that reduces the instinctive tendency to rattle their tails.
They do not call attention to themselves and escape detection. The ones that do not have this trait just rattle away and are soon killed.
A scary thought.
Here are the answers to the questions;
1. Largest venomous snake in North America is the Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. They can grow up to eight feet long.
2. The longest venomous snake in Africa is the Black Mamba. The average size is twelve to thirteen feet long. The biggest on record was fourteen feet seven inches.
3. The longest venomous snake in Australia is the Coastal Taipan. The biggest ever caught was nine feet five inches.
4. Australia has seventy five percent snake species that are venomous.
5. The venomous Gaboon Viper has the largest fangs.
6. The venomous Fer-De-Lance was the killer snake that killed workers in the sugar cane. The company brought back mongoose from India to kill all the Fer-De-Lance snakes in the sugar cane.
7. The biggest venomous snake in the world is the King Cobra.
Alaska is the only state without venomous snakes. Hawaii has a Yellow-Bellied sea snake in its waters.
The state with the most venomous snakes is Arizona. They have an amazing nineteen poisonous snakes.
The link below lists each state and their venomous snakes that live within.
"When in doubt, snuff it out"
SD/Dave I'm with YOU, When in doubt,"Killem all"
I worked with "Catfish" in south Texas. He stated there were only FIVE snakes he didn't like.
1. Big ones
2. Little ones
3. Live ones
4. Dead ones
5. Anything the top four doesn't cover!
I bow hunted with a Guide in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. There was a non venomous snake in the dirt road. He road over the snake with his truck and backed up and road over it again. After three times riding over this snake with his tires my brother said "Rudy, the snake is dead". He said "I Hate Snakes'!
I have a pair of snake chaps that have save this arizonian I more time then I would like.
Eastern Diamond Back, Black Mamba,Australia(southwestern texas),Gaboon Viper 2.5" or something like that,Jamaica brought in the mongoose to rid the poisonous snakes maybe it was the Virgin Islands though. Jamaica doesn't have any poisonous snakes of the 7 they have so. Hate snakes. Even rubber ones. It gave me the creeps reading this post.
