Which country has no snake? An unlikely tale, perhaps—yet Ireland is unusual for its absence of native snakes. It’s one of only a handful of places worldwide—including New Zealand, Iceland, Greenland, and Antarctica—where Indiana Jones and other snake-averse humans can visit without fear.
Are there snakes in every country? Snakes are found in almost every country in the world, but there are a few places without wild1 snakes. There are also snake-free parts of the oceans, and probably there are some urban areas that are so disturbed that no snakes live there any more (e.g., downtown Manhattan), although they once did.
Does Japan have snakes? Four line snake There are lots of snakes in Japan. Most of them are not venomous. They thrive in the rice paddies where they feed on frogs and small rodents and compete with wading birds who feed on the same animals and even snakes themselves. Snakes are associated with the water goddess Benzaiten.
Which state in India has most snakes? A total of 92,782 cases were reported in West Bengal whereas 38,682 and 21,711 cases were reported in Odisha and Uttar Pradesh respectively. Interestingly, Andhra Pradesh which registered the second-highest number of cases related to snake bite at 67,726 only saw 230 casualties in three years.
There are 270 plus species of snakes in India, out of which about 60 are highly venomous. The big four dangerous snakes of India includes Indian Cobra, Krait, Russell’s viper and Saw-scaled viper.
Indian subcontinent is home to approximately 10 percent of the total snake species found in the world and India is reported the most snakebites on humans by the big four venomous snake species native to India.
New Zealand is one of several large islands around the globe where there have never been native snake populations. Since snakes have neither evolved nor been deposited on the islands of New Zealand, their appearance would be a threat to other local wildlife, and so they are vigorously repelled.
Snakes of Italy
There are two main family types of snakes found extensively in Italy. None of them are poisonous, although three: the ‘Montpellier Snake’ (Malpolon monspessulanus), the ‘False Smooth Snake’ (Macroprotodon cucullatus), and the ‘Cat Snake’ (Telescopus fallax) all have fangs at the back of their upper jaw.
Out of 300 elapid species, which include the taipan, coral snake, and mamba, 60 can be found across the land and waters of Australia. Some are small and shy around humans, while others are large and obtrusive. The reason why almost all Australian snakes are venomous is that almost all of them are elapids.
Snakes: Canada is home to two venomous vipers: the Massasauga rattlesnake in southern Ontario and the western or Prairie rattlesnake in southern B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan. There are only three known deaths from rattlesnake bites in Canada in the last several decades.
A new study suggests that king snakes are, pound for pound, the strongest constrictors in the world.
There are around 50 snake species in Russia, of which around 11 possess venom that can pose a danger to humans, The Moscow Times reported. Among the venomous species is the common European viper (or adder), which is found across a vast area stretching from Western Europe to East Asia.
The rosy boa is one of the slowest-moving species of snakes in the world. It is unable to pursue prey and must either wait in ambush or stalk its meals. When a meal is within reach, usually a few inches, a rosy boa strikes with surprising speed and accuracy.
This title goes to the black mamba, a snake that occurs in the dry bushlands of eastern Africa and is well known for its neurotoxic venom. A largely terrestrial species that can reach approximately 4m in length, the black mamba has been recorded travelling at speeds of up to 15kmph on open ground.
But the truth about freshwater snakes is that they are all non-poisonous. Eastern Ghats Wildlife Society biologist K.L.N. Murthy said that the bite of a freshwater snake might be on occasions be painful, but was harmless because these snakes neither had fangs or poison glands.
The common krait (Bungarus caeruleus) is often considered to be the most dangerous snake species in India. Its venom consists mostly of powerful neurotoxins which induce muscle paralysis.
Thus the correct answer is (B). Python is a non poisonous snake.
A king cobra bite can kill a human in 15 minutes and a full-grown elephant in a few hours. What makes these cobras kings is not just their size, or their deadliness — after all, they don’t eat humans or elephants — it is that they eat other snakes. But the king cobra is not fazed by bites from its victims.
King cobras live mainly in the rain forests and plains of India, southern China, and Southeast Asia, and their coloring can vary greatly from region to region. They are comfortable in a variety of habitats, including forests, bamboo thickets, mangrove swamps, high-altitude grasslands, and in rivers.
Anaconda snakes are the heaviest and largest snakes in the world, found only in South America. Green Anaconda and Yellow Anaconda are non venomous boa species.
The black mamba, for example, injects up to 12 times the lethal dose for humans in each bite and may bite as many as 12 times in a single attack. This mamba has the fastest-acting venom of any snake, but humans are much larger than its usual prey so it still takes 20 minutes for you to die.
According to the most conservative estimates, at least 81,000 snake envenomings and 11,000 fatalities occur in India each year, making it the most heavily affected country in the world.
Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK. The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible. Grass snakes are usually green, with dark spots down their sides and yellow and black bands around their neck.
Everything is expensive, lack of job/career opportunities, far from everywhere. Houses are too expensive, renting an apartment almost take all your salary. As much as we would like to see NZ expanding its population, there’s a lack of job opportunities for locals and new migrants which is the main drawback.
In Britain there are three native species of snake: the adder, the grass snake and the smooth snake. Another animal that may be seen is the slow worm, which is actually a legless lizard – not a snake.
