Australia is the country known to be home of the most dangerous and venomous snakes in the world. Ironically, there are only a few incidents where people died of snake bites in this area.  Aside from this, the development of snake bite antidotes have contributed to decreasing the chances of venom fatalities to about four to six deaths per year. Worst, bites usually occur due to the fault of the victim attempting to kill the snake to show off or for any other reason rather than the snake being aggressive but was merely defending itself. These venomous snakes are as follows:

Eastern Brown Snake or Common Brown Snake
These are known for their bad temper, being aggressive and swift are the reason behind most snake bite deaths in Australia compared to other snakes. Not only do they find habitat in places where there are many people, but they also possess the second most toxic venom among snakes in the world.

Western Brown Snake or Gwardar
Compared to the Eastern Brown Snake, these have less chances of attacking humans but is still not to be underestimated since they are responsible for most of the snake-related deaths in Australia.

Mainland Tiger Snake or Common Tiger Snake
They rank second in terms of number of bites in Australia since they are usually found near farms to hunt mice where they can be stepped upon by unsuspecting farmers.

Inland Taipan or Fierce Snake
They earned their name due to their venom being one of the top 10 deadliest throughout the world where it has the potency of killing an fully grown human within a 45-minute duration.

Coastal Taipan or Eastern Taipan
These are not only equipped with the third most potent venom among land snakes but they also happen to have the longest fangs than any Australian snake.
