so my name is crocodile and I laugh you think this guy is dangerous you should see what I have in me one of the things I do is get poisonous
snakesout of tight corners in people's houses or like here in someone's car
snakesin places Strangers something like that can be scary and moody and since this is the only time people usually see them, they have the wrong idea about them, but the
realcharacter of a snake is completely different from where they belong. Snakes are gentle and beautiful creatures. I'll show you. I'll take you on a journey across Australia to see ten snakes, the ten most venomous snakes in the
world, each one a potential killer.
I'm Steve-o and I know a thing or two about snakes. I grew up with them. My father founded the Queensland Wildlife and Reptile Park near Brisbane now I run the park today. I'm going on an adventure. It's the trip of a lifetime to locate the 10 most venomous snakes in the
world. Fortunately, they all live here in Australia. Why does this country have such deadly snakes? No one is sure it could be an evolutionary accident, but jeez, that makes my life interesting. These trips will be great. I always wanted the opportunity to show people the amazing snakes we have in this country and not in a zoo or in someone's house. but where snakes live in the bush, they don't bite anyone or scare anyone, they just live peacefully with all this power stored in their venom.

the ten deadliest snakes in the world with steve irwin real wild documentary...
We still have a long way to go before we find our first venomous snake, but I have to show you this is pretty common to fight. It is quite common to find snakes sunbathing or absorbing the heat of the tarmac here in South East Queensland. This is not one of the venomous snakes we are looking for. Actually, this is it. a carpet python now, although it doesn't possess any venom, it still has quite Oh, it still gets bitten pretty hard now, when I try to touch it, it is retaliating by trying to bite. I think it's very important but I just ran him off the road because snakes get hit all the time he's a beauty this python doesn't know how lucky it is to meet a snake lover like me a lot of drivers around here will swerve to hit him to a snake on the road I'm leaving central Queensland behind and heading north towards the Great Dividing Range and that's just for starters.
I have thousands of miles of hard travel ahead of me. The first stops. Darwin in the Northern Territory. This tropical city is home to number 10 on my list, the tenth most venomous snake. in the world is the Western Brown, right in the center of the city, there is very little habitat for snakes, but just outside the city, in the suburbs, where the city meets the country, snakes are part of the daily life. The Western Browns have been living in this area for much longer than Humans are not willing to move just because someone built a suburb here.
I was told that a brown snake has taken up residence under this house. Let's see if it's the one I'm looking for. It's amazing to think that children play so close. that we have the possibility of encountering a western brown snake, the tenth most venomous snake in the world here in the warm tropical north, the sun is very intense and of course these buildings create the perfect, nice and cool shaded areas for a great number of dangerous animals, mice. and rats often dwell among the garbage and of course your poisonous snakes come looking for them and this tarp is a great place for snakes.
Well, this is the first snake on our list and I never expected to have such a close encounter. Very important. No It doesn't breathe, it will move suddenly because this is a
really healthy looking Western Brown; They are a fairly volatile dangerous snake and in this confined area under a house, let alone in close proximity, it is best to leave it alone, sometimes the best thing to do with a deadly snake in the house is to starve it. I'll take a look and then tell the family how to do it. Here is the culprit. It's not that the Western Brown will hang around on the off chance of eating a pet bird, but the problem is that the parrot is such a messy eater that the seed the parrot takes out of its cage attracts mice and mice. are what snakes are for here, try a different type of cage and hey, no mice or snakes with me. out of the way the snake goes out to look for breakfast the mice find their food by sniffing the air snakes also use smell but they don't use their nostrils they taste the air with their tongue to locate their prey no feet means they can't step on the mice I hear very well that they still won't know about the snake until it's too late, the tongue moves following the mouse at a long distance and the mouse is already almost dead.
Next snake number nine, the Death Adder, to find this one we headed back to Queensland. I have to go out into the real mountains. This piece of nature is now like Robinsons Gorge. It is made up of forests and steep cliffs. Over millions of years, wind and water have carved the sandstone into caves and ledges perfect for animals like rock kangaroos. Here it is very far from a hospital. I have my radio in case he bites me and I need to call the flying doctor. I also carry pressure bandages the best first aid for a snake bite.
This place is as remote as the rock. Wallabies have not learned to be afraid of humans, even crawling over these cliffs requires quite a bit of skill. It's not as easy as crawling under houses. Death adders usually live on the most inaccessible ledges. This is the perfect place. Really good, so next one. The trick now is to look for clues across these rock platforms, another obvious sign, the good thing is to look for other rich Pahl's as you go, this sounds pretty hot at the moment and there are probably a few around here cooling off in the shade, you can see . leaves a very distinctive get that attracts pushing the sand down this is brilliant now we're going to have to be a little careful because we're quartz these snakes won't move away from you go straight through the Roma spray just come here and he's one , I'm fed up, I don't want to say any danger at all, they are a very shy and timid blessed snake and this is what they go through most of their problems in the sense that they don't retreat and they run out of people right. sit down trust their camouflage thinking they are safe people stand over them they brought rolling hard this looks dangerous I know but the secret is to be as slow and gentle as the snake this is a potentially dangerous situation we have here nothing worse than death Between three shoelaces, take a look at this little beauty, aren't they glorious?
This is the Death Viper, a very short and robust body, a rather large and silly head, a triangular shaped head, now come out by name, not by nature, as you can see, the Death Viper is very placid very quiet and shy and very unemployed to bite or hit I just have to keep my fingers out of the way now owe he also has a very nice pair of fangs much bigger than any of the others we are going to take a look at he has settled nicely under your leaf if it's important for me to remember that I'm a visitor in your territory and this is your environment so I better get out of here because I have a big rise before sunset, the blood animals Colds tend to slow down at night unless they are like the death adder and hunt other cold-blooded animals, in which case dusk may be the beginning of the work day, but the death adder does not try very hard . it is an ambush predator it uses the end of its tail as a lure the rest of the snake remains completely still while the tail rises and wriggles like a worm a skink comes and grabs it the worm sneaks up on it it is a deadly injection of venom it is a huge overdose, much more than is needed to kill a skink, but the death adder does not attack very often, it will not need another meal for three or four weeks, snake number eight goes months without food, it is found the giant black tiger Mount Chapel Island, just off the coast of Tasmania, Aboriginal people used to call it the moving island because it is full of six foot long snakes, of course the snakes don't realize how much they scare humans , they're too busy scaring us when I turn around.
Upstairs they hide in their holes I'm going to have to uproot it this island is absolutely riddled with burrows now here's a relatively new one the holes are actually dug by birds lamb birds were named by local people for the way they savor masses of se They breed here every summer and their chicks provide enough food for the snakes. It takes a couple of months for the chicks to develop their feathers and fly. After that, the snakes do not eat for ten months until the next lambing season. Now this is a juvenile and it still has these very typical bands of the tiger snake that you will lose when it spreads the old hood and you can see that our agile is a little mischievous, yes, look at this, here is the difference, this place is crossed for the snakes, take a look.
In this one, this is a big three adult, it probably has a lamb bird on its belly and its leatherback lost all those bands and is solid black and is now a beauty, unlike that smaller one, it would have no natural predators and it is very quiet. When handling snakes, I try to be as gentle as possible. I don't grab them behind the head like everyone thinks, that can hurt the snake and make it want to bite. Snakes have very delicate back bones with ease. damaged I always try to support the body with my hands and make sure that a part of it rests on the ground at all times by simply letting it down like my pole, then I better not have time to waste time on this trip since take my transport back to the mainland lamb The birds return to the island after several days feeding in the sea they bring fish for their chicks when the chicks are big enough all the birds will fly north but the donkeys will not be left empty They will be used Like nurseries by female tiger snakes, unlike most snakes, these are born without eggs, the babies emerge fully formed, are completely independent and are armed with the eighth strongest venom in the world.
The number seven is another type of tiger snake. one is back on the mainland in Western Australia it's a swamp dweller take a look at this stuff because I'm evil ooh it doesn't smell very hot but it is absolutely packed with nutrients and of course the insects that live in it and on he is prolific and as far as snakes go insects are good for one thing, keeping frogs fed fat and ready to eat as a general rule if you use good solid steps the snakes get out of your way quickly now. I have been very stealthy, very tender with my feet and the reason is that there is a snake here, they have no ears, they feel vibrations, footsteps knocking, the snake will disperse, so if I step over this snake and yell at it, hey snake , won. he doesn't react he can't hear me here he comes be careful what I have to do is bring him here on the flat ground we can deal with you just don't walk away from there right now it's very important that I'm very nice to him because you can see how flattened he is when they flatten out like that it's like a cobra and he says look how big I am I'm a poisonous snake that's cool be careful try to get in and get his tail lucky night hey, he keeps covering his tile very well, it's very hard to catch him when they're like that, oh, you're a grumpy snake, now it's a little irritable, white, wow, too close, it was too close, it almost picked me up on the nose and got bitten.
The face is very hard because you can't put a pressure bandage on it. This snake is particularly aggressive. The reason is that I am cornered. He feels confronted. He thinks I'm going to hurt him, maybe even eating the only way he can. of defense it is aggression to retaliate it is very important that I grab it by the tail otherwise I cannot manipulate it and what happens is that every time I try to grab it another tail hits me, that's right, I'm getting tired. from him as it is from me, I may have been a little scared of this western tiger, but he soon recovers and starts looking for frogs again to catch frogs a snake has to do what frogs do swim a little and climb a little frogs climb using sticky pads on their toes snakes have to do without their toes they climb by undulating the scales on their belly as if they were steps on an escalator the ancestors of snakes were lizards lizards Diggers lost their limbs in the process of becoming better borrowers, so snakes were originally designed for narrow holes, but in fact, they can go almost anywhere other animals can go, but that doesn't mean they always get the best.
They are looking for snake number six. I'm on the Great BarrierCoral, the beaked sea snake is the most venomous of all sea snakes. Sea snakes need to be highly venomous to immobilize their prey quickly. Venom is also a great defense system and so is hiding in the coral, which is where all snakes should be at this time. Well, he finally won, but it's not a rhythm. an olive sea snake his tail is sensitive to light he detects potential predators like me by detecting his shadow he is another olive and seems a little friendlier or he is just admiring his reflection in my glasses he moves his tongue to find out what this is It could be a strange object, but soon loses interest when he realizes that I am not another sea snake.
Sea snakes breathe air like other snakes, but one puff can last several hours longer than my scuba tanks. Anyway, on my way back to the boat to dump the empties I've seen what looks like our target snake there's no time to change the tanks I'll go look for it with my snorkel gear now it's nothing it's a close relative a sea snake Stokes is also very big, especially this absolutely glorious snake closeup, they have an incredible body structure. You can see how their belly scales up and down and splits to form a keel that helps with swimming.
They fit around the head and feel like a snake, not slimy like an eel or a fish, and if we look down at the tail , we can see that it is very flattened, almost like an oar, and this propels them through the water quite quickly and they can even go. On the other hand you can see how all sea snakes are not aggressive they breathe air just like us so bring it to the surface there is no harm she is quite placid and look at those nostrils look how she opens and closes them they are totally airtight, let's let it go and see what does it do well?
There is no large sea snake, but don't worry, we saw plenty of others. It's time to move on to number five and I'm back at sea for this one near Ruiz B Island in South Australia. I'm after another type of tiger snake, but even more deadly than the ones we've seen so far when I set foot in the trees. I will be your entire human population. There is plenty of
wildlife here, including plenty of deadly snakes. the weather changes on this island are pretty quick one minute sunny the next minute its cloudy but actually i think this cloud cover is going to work for me maybe there will be some tigers out the term cold blooded can be a little misleading as far as What it means is that you don't have your own internal heating system you have more or less the same temperature as everything around you if you're cold you go out in the sun to warm up if it's too hot you go somewhere cool and cloudy The day here is the right one for let the snakes be outside without boiling, wow what a beautiful little Ripper, now I can say this is a female aid and she is in very good condition now she is also gravid which is a state of pregnancy in a snake. look, she has a lump that starts here and goes to her belly and she is beautiful, very placid, look at her body under the scales, that little template is there, they are ticks, they are an external parasite and they feed on blood on the snake many Australian animals carry ticks and they don't present much of a problem, she is so beautiful and since she is pregnant I will let her go when I go out to take my boat, snakes are left with only their daily irritations, ticks for example, normally snakes only have They have to put up with these little bloodsuckers, but several times a year they unload them along with their own skin, first they loosen the beak around the head and the rest follows a totally technology-free snake for At least a while to find snake number Four of us move from a desert island to a completely different environment, but the snake we are looking for is not that different from the previous one, it is another type of tiger snake, the eastern tiger, the
deadliesttiger of all. reeds be The island tiger snake had a hard time getting out of the sun, but here in the forest the eastern tiger has the opposite problem: a lot of shade, it stays in openings in the forest canopy where sunlight can pass through, these They are easier to find along the edge. of streams and rivers, what a great example of how a snake, if left alone, will quickly get out of your way, not stop and hit the rainforest, it is a great place to see other
wildlife too, just you must keep your eyes wide open, a creature.
What you can see is this rainforest dragon. He doesn't bother running because he feels well camouflaged among the leaves. Snakes are not so confident, although when they feel the vibrations of my steps they take cover. I'll have to check out some of theirs. The hiding places he has gained here are unreal. That's the most tiger snakes I've ever seen in one place at one time in my life. No one really knows why Eastern tiger snakes huddle together like this, maybe they just like the company. number three we are leaving the desert and heading to the sugar cane fields of eastern queensland this is taipan country this cane field is full of OHS rappers like this and given the prevalence of rats I would assume there would be Lots of surf type ants around but I'd say they are inside rat burrows or somewhere where it's cool even though the sun has set it's still stinking hot so I'll come back a little later in the day. night is not necessarily the best.
It's time to find Taipans, but when it's so hot during the day it's probably a better bet. Certainly when the rats are more active it will be riskier for me, though simply because it is harder to see what is going on around my feet. Well, the Taipan theme with the Taipan is one of the stealthiest snakes in the Australian bush and would be the most dangerous snake I will encounter on this entire trip. Beautiful specimen, they have the habit of returning directly over their own body and whistling past. your ear, so let's take a look and then I'll let it go.
No friend, good hunting. I work with snakes every day, but Taipans really make me nervous. This open mouth must look pretty intimidating to a rat, but that's not the point. snakes simply realign their jaw the rats shell soon opens wide Snakes have a unique way of eating, they have no hands to palate and they do not chew their food, they swallow it whole, no matter how big the food is. this by separating its jaw from the rest of its skull the prey swallowed first with the head and then the digestive juices finished what the venom began to see the second most venomous snake in the world I am going home to Brisbane stopping at the reptile park to say good morning to my animals, a common brown snake number two in my top ten has been seen behind my own house.
Welcome to my shed. All children should have one. Now I grew up here. This shed has been here since the 1970s. Now Terry, my wife. She tells me that somewhere around here there is a common brown snake and a large one and she estimates it is 2 meters 6 feet, ideally what they will do is stay down, there are terrestrial snakes that do not venture very high and are not good at climbing right now, this is the perfect setting for a brown snake because where you have rats and mice of course that's where you'll find the brown snakes, they come in and circle around here looking for food, oh there aren't any mice near Europa.
The house mouse and beautiful little snakes often find their way into the engine case of a car. Now comes the difficult part of trying to get this highly venomous snake out of a fairly tight area. The common brown likes places where people are common. I go into houses a lot and when Australians get bitten it's usually by this snake. I'm pretty used to rescuing these snakes from scared humans. Well, what epic brown common in that type of environment is certainly very dangerous. I had to use a catch bag. I don't put his tail in a catch bag and he will be taken back to the bush where he will never be able to face people again.
This is one of the biggest rewards for me being in the release of a potentially dangerous animal into the desert where it belongs, you have to be a little careful because they usually come out of this bag very irritable and now it's time to meet the snake number one at the top and list the most venomous snake on the face of the earth and for this I am heading to the outback from Brisbane. It is a difficult 3 day trip. Some of the cattle stations here are the size of a small country. There are many sheep and cows around, but many. wildlife too, on this last encounter I brought my best friend and we go on motorcycles because where we go, even four wheel drive vehicles are in the proverbial creek, if you are going to be bitten by a poisonous snake, you couldn't choose a.
In the worst place, we are miles from any kind of medical help, that's why I bought some long clothes as a backup, this has to be one of the most desolate landscapes in the world, there is almost nothing here except rats, flies and vicious snakes. Deadly snake on the planet, this is my country and I grew up here and the ferocious snake is an old companion of mine, but I'll tell you what happens if you get hit in a remote area like this, even where it won't. Being able to help the ferocious snake possesses enough toxins that with a single bite it would be able to kill more than a hundred adult humans.
It's pretty impressive. I've been handling snakes since I was a kid and I've never been bitten, but not that. Not to say I'm not nervous, you have to have respect for these deadly snakes and when handling them you can't let your mind wander on the plane, the grounds riddled with deep crevices and rat burrows, the perfect place for a fierce night to put their eggs this clutch is about to hatch at this early stage the young appear completely harmless but appearances can be deceiving each ferocious baby snake already carries enough venom to kill several terrestrial men, certainly enough to take us down with the ferocious name Se looks quite drab, a kind of brown snake, they vary in color, some of them are strikingly beautiful, it's big, it's about six feet two meters and what it does is just search, probe for rat holes under the ground, it's like an underground The maze now charges by its name, certainly not by nature, as long as you give it enough distance, they are not that aggressive.
Here she comes, she will come out again, as long as she doesn't threaten her, we will create too much vibration. I don't worry about myself, well that hasn't happened to me before or anyone else, I mean I think the world's
deadliestsnake came up and gave me a lick. Thank goodness he didn't really like the flavor we just saw. Australia's 10 most venomous snakes in the world. Yes, it was a wild adventure for me. I hope you enjoyed it too. Snakes are really special and there is still a lot more to learn about them, but we will need a little less fear. much more respect
