In total, there are about 2,700 different species of snakes around the world. Out of these 2,700 species of snakes, only about 375 are considered to be poisonous and deadly. There are about ten species of snakes that live in the United States that are almost extinct.

Snakes are found in almost every country in the world. However, there are some countries that have no snakes. These countries include Antarctica, Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, and New Zealand. Snakes like to dwell in tropical areas and these five countries do not have an tropical climates that would be appealing to a snake.

Most snakes are found in tropical regions where there is plenty of warm sunshine (because they are cold blooded and depend on the sun to survive), water, and food. They prefer to live in forests, deserts, and prairies.

The black mamba is not the most venomous snake. The most venomous snake is called the inland taipan or the fierce snake. This snake can kill five hundred thousand mice with one bite or twelve people. But this snake rarely comes into contact with people so bites are rare. But in terms of venom it has the most lethal venom in the world.

King Cobra is the most venomous snake. If it's poison is put in to a bottle which is a cm long, and a hundred people drink it, they would all die. Therefore, King Cobra is the most deadliest snake in the world.
