Australia is known as the place with all the deadly animals. Whether they have fur, fins, shells or scales, Australia has them. Snakes are no exception. In fact Australia is known to have loads of venomous snakes. Some of the most venomous on the planet. Think the
Inland Taipan, Brown, Mulga, Death Adder and Tiger Snakes.
So the TNOS team set out to explore just why our snakes are so darn venomous. What we discovered is that it depends on a number of factors including:
* How much food is available;
* The volume of venom the snakes produce;
* Minimising injury to the snake; and
* The potency of the venom.
