Share/Bookmark

There are more than 2,900 species of snakes spread worldwide, of which about 600 species are known to be poisonous. Inland Taipan is the world’s most venomous land snake. Its bite causes nearly certain death. A few mg of Inland Taipan’s venom is enough to kill over 100 people or 250,000 mice. The venom of a taipan is 200-400 times more toxic than most rattlesnakes and 50 times as toxic as a cobra It has a neurotoxic venom that can kill an adult human in 45 minutes. Snakes are not known to be particularly aggressive, but docile. They will strike if provoked.

Taipans are divided into five sub-species:
Western or Inland Taipan (Oxyuranus microlepidotus)
Papuan Taipan (Oxyuranus s. canni)
Common or Coastal Taipan (Oxyuranus scutellatus)
Central Ranges Taipan (Oxyuranus temporalis)
North-West Australian Taipan (Oxyuranus scutellatus barringeri)
