Taipan one of the deadliest creature

Another entry from Australia, the venom in a Taipan is strong enough to kill up to 12,000 guinea pigs. The venom clots the victim’s blood, blocking arteries or veins. It is also highly neurotoxic.

Before the advent of an antivenin, there are no known survivors of a Taipan bite, and death typically occurs within an hour.

Even with successful administration of antivenin, most victims will have an extensive stay in intensive care. It has been likened to the African Black Mamba in morphology, ecology and behavior.
