Entertainment | By Cole Damon | November 7, 2017

Ah yes, snakes! They truly are the devils from hell slithering their way through the earth, destroying everything in their path! While that is true, you simply cannot deny their beauty. Deadly but quite beautiful! Yeah, not all snakes are deadly but some are really true to their nature. If not through their power bodies wrapping around you and crushing every bone in your body, the job can quite easily be done by the venom in them.

But people are snakes

Ah yes, people are, no doubt. But they can never come close to how real snakes are. You know what they say, you can never get the real thing! The kind of snake that people are may be destructive to you but you'll still survive. Remember when Jafar turned into one?

Such beauties!

It's funny how something that looks more of a fancy, colored rope can be admired by so many. However, when you actually see one in real life, you understand just what all the hype is truly about. These beauties can kill you with just one bite!

How about pets?

Yes, some people keep snakes as pets but that still doesn't make them any less dangerous. No matter what you do, you can never pet a pet snake and that's rule number 1 of, well, pet snakes. Remember, they may sometimes look cute but they're serpents and serpents are never nice!

Which ones are deadly?

Well, all of them but if you're really looking at snakes that could be the death of you then you've come to the right place. It's not easy making this list because there are just too many to count, however, here are a few that you need to avoid at all costs:

#1: The Brown Snake

Found on the plains of Indonesia and Australia, the Brown snake is known to be the second most venomous snake in the world. These belong to the "Elapid" species and it's no doubt that these are considered the top most dangerous snakes on the list.

#2: The Rattle Snake

The rattle snake is not doubt amongst the list, you commonly find them hidden away under sand dunes and can only tell they're there by the sound of their rattler. These snakes normally make the sound when danger is lurking nearby but that's only to warn their predators off. Talk about being fierce!

#3: The Taipan

They look adorable, that's for sure, but don't take their looks for granted because sometimes it's the looks that can kill! This snake is considered to be much worse than a Cobra and it's bite contains enough venom to kill at lead 100 people.

#4: King Cobra

Oh yes, who hasn't heard of the infamous King Cobra? Although we've established that the Taipan is much worse but that still doesn't take the spotlight away from this beauty. Unlike the Taipan, the Cobra also looks deadly so you know to stay away!

#5: The Tiger Snake

The Tiger Snake has venom that is powerful enough to reach the level of being neurotoxic, myotoxins and hemolysins. That means it's powerful enough to kill at least 10 elephants at a time. This will really make you question the viciousness of the Cobra!

#6: The Climbing Saw Serpent
