It all depends on what we mean by "deadly". Should we consider it to be the snake that kills the most people, or the snake that has the most poisonous venom?Some experts have called the king cobra the world's deadliest snake. And they give several reasons for this. It is the longest venomous snake in the world. Its venom is very powerful. And it is a snake that does not hesitate to attack. There have been cases of people dying in less than an hour after being bitten by a king cobra.

Another candidate for "deadliest" is the tiger snake of Australia. Its venom is one of the most potent known. But this snake only has a limited amount of this venom.
There is also a snake in India called the krait which belongs to this group. There are records to show that about 77 per cent of all people bitten by this snake die. The spectacled cobra of India actually kills more people than any other kind, but less than 10 per cent of those bitten would die if they received treatment in time.

By the way, the largest snake in the world is not the deadliest. This is the anaconda of South America. It can be as long as 9 metres. But this snake is found in areas that are very hard to get to, so there may be even larger anacondas that have not yet been discovered.
In the United Kingdom there is only one poisonous snake, the adder, which is found in most parts of the British Isles, but not in Ireland.

In Central and South America the Fre-De-Lance is called the 5 step snake once bitten you have 5 steps to pray and lay down. Then there is the Bush Master which is the second little known deadly snake. The most venomous snake in the world is the Sea snake. But if you have an allergic reaction to snake venom any snake bite will be deadly.
