The above list seems to be wrong. Adam has been kind enough to point me to the correct list.

Um, this list is wrong. First off, numbers 6 ( The Reticulated Python )and 10 ( The Anaconda ) are constrictors and competely non-venomous. That alone invalidates the list. Second, The King Cobra is not the most venomous snake in the world…That would be The Fierce Snake or Inland Taipan of Australia. The black mamba is also not one of the top ten. And Although one of the top ten is a rattlesnake the generic term rattle snake refers to over 20 species, only one of which is on the top ten list.

Wow! That’s some nice information. I put up this list after watching a show on Animal Planet. I never even thought about verifying it. Thanks mate!

The reticulated python and anaconda are not venomous species.
