Inland taipan (fierce snake)

Often called the most venomous snake on earth, these creatures are anything but dangerous

Although the Inland taipan is highly venomous, there has never been a single recorded human fatality from a bite of this snake! They consistently choose to flee from danger since they are so shy and withdrawn. The fierce snake is found in a remote area of Australia and is rarely encountered in its remote, semi-arid homeland.

Inland taipans usually live solitary lives. They only come together with one another among their species when the breeding season arrives. They have an extraordinary ability to become lighter throughout summer and darker in the winter season, which helps with their thermoregulation by increasing and decreasing absorbed light.
