The Oxyuranus microlepidotus (Taipan snake) is the most venomous land snake. Its venom is 200-400 times more toxic than rattlesnake venom, and about 50 times as potent as cobra venom. For as toxic as this snake is, it is rather shy mannered and stays away from humans. It will only bite if provoked. Therefore, it is deadly within an hour if harassed as it should not be, but otherwise different less poisonous snakes are more deadly.
The taipan injects 44 mg of venom with each bit on average. Its venom is so strong that it can kill an adult human in 45 minutes. The median lethal dose is 0.03 mg. The inland taipan possesses the most toxic venom of any snake in the world. Despite being so venomous, Australia only has 2-3 snakebites each year compared to the 40,000 people that die from venomous snake bites each year.
