8 Taipan – The Taipan is large, fast moving and extremely venomous. They can be found in Australia and are considered some of the most deadly known snakes. The venom in a Taipan is strong enough to kill up to 12,000 guinea pigs. When bit by this snake, the venom works quickly to paralyze the victim’s nervous system and to clot the blood, blocking the blood vessels and blood clotting. Death usually occurs within 30 minutes to an hour. They prey mostly on small mammals, especially rats.
7 Death Adder - The Death Adder are native to Australia, New Guinea and nearby islands. The fittingly named Death Adder is among the most deadly snakes in the world. They are very viper-like in their appearance and have a short body and triangular shaped heads. The Death Adder has the quickest bite in the world and can strike and return to ready position in less than .1 of a second. It releases between 40 and 100mg of venom in one bite and it may cause paralysis or death within 6 hours. Antivenom is very effective in treating a bite from a Death Adder, mainly due to the somewhat slow onset of symptoms, but before the antivenom was developed, a Death Adder bite had a fatality rate of 50%.
6 Tiger Snake – Found in the southern regions of Australia, these snakes can kill its prey as quickly as 30 minutes or as long as 24 hours after a single bite. Once bitten by the Tiger snake, some symptoms include pain in the foot, neck, numbness, tingling and sweating. It will also cause difficulty breathing and paralysis. The good news is that when encountered, the Tiger snake’s first impulse is to flee – it will usually only attack when cornered.
5 Vipers – The most Venomous vipers in the world are the Chain Viper and the Saw Scaled Viper. These vipers are found in China, India, Central Asia, Middle East and Southeast Asia. Vipers are some of the most aggressive snakes and have a very short fuse. They are quick tempered and are often active after rains. They are also very fast. It doesn’t take a lot to get them riled up and they will strike quickly and with little warning. They stalk at night and the vipers bite is very painful and will leave you in excruciating pain.
4 Black Mamba – The Black Mamba can be found in Africa and is one of the most feared snakes there. It is one of the longest venomous snakes, measuring between 6 and 10 feet. There have even been reports of black mambas as long as 15 feet. When threatened, it will open its inky black mouth, spreads its narrow neck-flap and can sometimes hiss. It delivers its bites in rapid succession and is severely venomous. Depending on the nature of the bite, death can result at any time between 15 minutes and 3 hours.
3 Inland Taipan – This snake differs from the plain old Taipan snake in that it is the deadliest land snake in existence. It could kill 100 humans with its venom which is 50 times more potent than that of a Cobra. Although it is observed to be a rather shy reptile, when it does bite it has been known to strike up to 7 times. Its bite can kill a human in 45 minutes, although no fatalities have ever been recorded due to the rarity and non-aggressive nature of this snake.
2 Blue Krait – The Blue Krait is the deadliest snake in its species. Death rate of those bitten are 50%, even if antivenom is administered. Their venom is 16 times more potent than that of a Cobra. They are nocturnal and become more aggressive in dark situations. They differ from aggressive snakes in that they would rather hide than attack. When it does bite will cause paralysis with symptoms of cramps, spasms and tremors. It usually takes its prey between 6 and 12 hours before death after a bite.
1 Belcher’s Sea Snake – We saved the most deadly for last. The Belcher Sea Snake can be found in Northern Australian and Southeast Asian waters and has the most Venomous venom known to mankind. 1000 humans can be killed with one single bite. The Belcher Sea Snake is a pretty calm snake and it’s mostly the fisherman who pull up fishing nets from the sea who get bit most often. The snake rarely goes on land and actually breathes air but can hold its breath for 7 to 8 hours while hunting and sleeping underwater. Only 25 % of those bitten are envenomed, but if the venom were used its prey would die within 30 minutes.

from wiki: Belcher's sea snake has been erroneously popularized as the most venomous snake in the world, due to Ernst and Zug's published book "Snakes in Question: The Smithsonian Answer Book" from 1996. Associate Professor Bryan Grieg Fry, a prominent venom expert, has clarified the error: "The hook nosed myth was due to a fundamental error in a book called 'Snakes in question'. In there, all the toxicity testing results were lumped in together, regardless of the mode of testing (e.g. subcutaneous vs. intramuscular vs intravenous vs intraperitoneal). As the mode can influence the relative number, venoms can only be compared within a mode. Otherwise, its apples and rocks.". Studies on mice and human cardiac cell culture shows that venom of the inland taipan, drop by drop, is the most toxic among all snakes; land or sea. The most venomous sea snake is actually Dubois' seasnake
Yes, these are the most venomous snakes, but these are not the deadliest. Deadly means deaths. The saw-scaled and russell's viper, the black mamba, the fer-de-lance, the cobras and kraits. They kill thousands of humans every year, yet their venoms are mild compared with the most venomous snakes. If you have half a brain, you will not correlate toxicity with deaths. The inland taipan, widely considered the most venomous snake, has caused ONE human fatality in recorded history. The Russell's viper kills 25,000 people in India alone EVERY YEAR! The saw-scaled viper - 20,000 in Africa, 5,000 in India yearly. A hundred thousand bites, not all fatal, are reported for the Indian cobra yearly. So, before you knock Australia, smart up and contemplate on what I have posted.
Do a search for LD50, this entire list is fucking wrong. Apart from lacking a basic understanding of venom, you lack the ability to run a simple internet search, I wonder how you guys learn to make videos. The friend who sent me this, is getting unfriended.
U forgot Malaysian Blue Coral snake. It's extremely venomous and occasionally caused death because anti venom is extremely rare. Even u didn't know this fact. Go to hospital and ask them if u were being bitten by one Malaysian Blue Coral Snake
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
