We all have heard many stories related to snakes, how our elders have faced very big and dangerous snakes. In the stories of India anyway, great importance has been given to snakes. Our deities, along with God etc., see some or the other serpent or special snake-like deity. This shows that humans give a special place to snakes in their lives and stories. So today we are going to tell you about a snake whose venom released once in a bite can kill more than 100 adult humans. We are talking about the Inland Taipan (Dandrabilla) found in Australia.
The average amount of venom delivered by this species is 44 mg and the maximum dose recorded is 110 mg, compared to the Indian cobra (Naja naja) 169 mg/maximum 610 mg, and the North American eastern diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus adamantus) 410 mg.
The average lethal dose (LD50) for rats, subcutaneously (most applicable to actual bites) is 0.025 mg/kg (0.01 mg/kg subcutaneously, in bovine serum albumin). The inland taipan has a smaller venom yield than its cousin, compared to the beaked sea snake (Anhydrina schistosa) 0.164 mg/kg, the Indian cobra 0.565 mg/kg, the North American eastern diamondback rattlesnake 11.4 mg/kg, etc. . The Coastal Taipan Yet its venom is about four times as toxic. The venom of one bite is enough to kill 100 fully grown males.
If even a small amount of its poison enters the ape body, then understand that it is almost impossible to escape. Its poison breaks the neuro system of the body in a few minutes, due to which first paralysis dies in the body and then the heart stops beating.
A special thing about this snake is that it also changes its color according to the season. In Australia, this snake has a special protection, so it is a legal offense to take its life. But this wonderful snake is known for its beauty and the world’s fastest venom and will keep on going and yes, get away from wherever you see it.
