Snakes have always fascinated me with their small size but deadliness. Why does a 2 meter snake need a poison so powerful that it can kill a man in a few hours? It's not like it can swallow it and eat it. No, they have it so they can kill us with it. Small, flexible, camouflaged and deadly - the perfect offensive animals. There are thousands of records of snakes sneaking into houses so they can kill us. Although some wise guy at animal planet claims that snakes go there because they are hunting for rodents...like there aren't any in the wildlife, he can't bring back the hundreds of people dying every year, especially in South Asia.
