Snakes are incredible creatures but are very misunderstood. Many people don't understand these creatures and we do fear what we don't understand or know. It's just part of being human. Just like how people can hold world records so can animals. In this blog we will be focusing on records snakes have made.
World's Largest Snake
Did you know that the largest species of snake in the world is the Reticulated Python? Thats right they are even bigger than the Anaconda. The Reticulated Python can grow to 10 m long. The pattern on their scaly skin helps them to blend into their habitat. Their diet consists of pigs, deers, other large mammals, reptiles and birds. These snakes are found in rainforests of South East Asia. This is a snake that deserves your respect. They are truly amazing creatures.
World's Largest Venomous Snake
The King Cobra is the world's largest venomous snake as it can reach a length of 5 m long. These snakes are also found in South East Asia but are also found in India. This species of snake is a cannibal, eating others of its own kind. But their diet also consist of rodents as well as lizards. But these amazing snakes are being threatened with extinction as they are classed as Vulnerable. Their main threat is their habitat being destroyed for many things like palm oil plantations, timber, housing and agriculture. They are also unfortunately killed for their skin and their meat so it can be used in traditional medicines!
World's Most Venmous
The world's most venomous. The most toxic is the Fierce Snake. This serpent has many other names. These include the Western Taipan, Inland Taipan and the Small Scaled Snake. It has enough venom to kill 150,000 rats. In one bite this snake can kill 100 men. But despite this no one has ever died from an Inland Taipan. This is because they live in the middle of no where, the Australian outback. The majority of their diet consist of rats. These snakes usually grow to 2.5 m.
