Snakes are one of the most feared creatures present on the Earth. However, the concern is, are all types of snakes dangerous? The simple answer to this question is NO! Although a majority of snakes are considered harmless, but it is still required to maintain a distance to prevent any regretful situation. That’s because bites from a non-venomous serpent can be as painful as the venomous one.
Snakes seem evolved from the reptilian ancestors, land bound lizards or from Mosasaurs – a family of marine reptiles present in the sea for over hundred million years ago. Around the world, you may find several types of snakes, with almost 500 genera and over 3,000+ named species. However, out of 3,570 species; only 600 of them are toxic and among these poisonous ones; only 300 spices have extremely powerful venom to cause death of a person. On the other hand, a relatively harmless snake bite can still result in minor flesh wounds, but timely medical attention and medication with anti-venom properties can save the individual from further damage.
