Inland Taipan definitely deserves a spot of one of he most dangerous and poisonous snakes all over the world... It has the most toxic venom of any land snake in the world.

The maximum yield recorded for one bite is 110mg, enough to kill about 100 humans, or 250,000 mice.

With an LD/50 of 0.03mg/kg, it is 10 times as venomous as the Mojave Rattlesnake, and 50 times more than the common Cobra.

Fortunately, the Inland Taipan is not particularly aggressive and is rarely encountered by humans in the wild. No fatalities have ever been recorded, though it could potentially kill an adult human within 45 minutes.
