Faint-banded sea snake

Faint-banded sea snake

As expected on this list of the world’s most dangerous animals, there’s one or two snakes here and the faint-banded sea snake is no exception. But we must point out, this snake is actually owed an apology.

In 1996, two authors, Ernst and Zug, published book called Snakes in Question: The Smithsonian Answer Book. In this book, the faint-banded sea snake was mistakenly categorised along with the hook nosed sea snake, a different species. Since then, the faint-banded sea snake has been presumed to be the most venomous snake in the word, when in fact, this isn’t true.

However, you still don’t want to find yourself alone with a faint-banded sea snake when they might be in a bad mood, because they’re still extremely venomous. Since they’re a water dwelling snake, the only reported victims have been Vietnamese fishermen. But if you’re in Vietnam and fancy a spot of fishing, keep this in mind!
