Re: deadliest snakes — this is a pretty weak article, either uninformed or sensationalized. Deadliest does not mean most venomous, nor most intimidating. It means "causing the most deaths." The snakes that cause the most human deaths are: Russell's viper, Indian cobra, common krait, saw-scaled viper (these four primarily in South Asia and the Indian subcontinent), and puff adder (sub-Saharan Africa). None of these has particularly toxic venom, but they deliver large doses when they bite, and their habitat preferences and behavior bring them into frequent contact with many people. Given the nature of life in these regions, most people do not have access to modern medical care. The combination of these factors results in the large number of fatalities — many thousand per year in India alone. Deaths from all other species combined are so infrequent as to be statistically insignificant.
