Smallest, Heaviest, Most Poisonous

The world’s smallest snake has been discovered on the Caribbean island of Barbados. It is only about 10 cms long, looks like an earthworm, and belongs to a group known as thread snakes. The world’s heaviest snake is known to be the green anaconda. The heaviest green anaconda ever weighed was around 250 kilogrammes. The most poisonous snake in the world is the Inland Taipan of Australia. Just a single bite from this snake contains enough venom to kill 100 human adults, or an army of 250,000 mice.
