While many people love snakes and even keep them as bets, others are flat-out terrified of them.
Fear of snakes is so ubiquitous that snakes are traditionally used to symbolize evil in mythology, literature and film.
Of course, snakes are not evil and many of them are quite docile, even friendly, but a number of species can be quite dangerous if you cross them in nature, especially if they feel threatened.
Even snakes that are generally friendly can tell you what their venom if you take them by surprise.

Just be sure to hit that subscribe button before watching dangerous snake blue crate.
This species, , native to Southeast Asia and Indonesia, has venom sixteen times stronger than a cobras, unfortunately, and it then is not as effective against blue crate bites as it is against other types of snake bites.
This makes it one of the most dangerous snakes, but fortunately the blue crate is nocturnal, so if you don’t roam around at night and the underbrush, you will probably avoid a blue crate encounter.
Black mamba: the Black Mamba is native to Africa.
While it may not be the most venomous snake in the World- one buy may only deliver enough venom to kill ten people- it is still arguably the most dangerous snake in the world for other reasons.

A black mamba may strike its target a dozen times in a row.
Without prompt treatment.

It can spit its venom as far as three metres to reach its target.
A bite from the Philippine Cobra can lead to death from paralysis within a half-hour.
Saw-scaled Viper: this is one of the most dangerous Vipers, along with the chain Viper.
