You'd think Australia was highest given how much they whine about their venomous species. Although I suppose the drop bear is merely dangerous, not venomous.

Australia has animals with the most potent venom. For example inland taipan or the Irukanji medusa are considered to have the most potent venom. Both are native to Australia.

We don't whine about them. It's everyone else coming here that keeps worrying. I've only seen a venomous species once. Most of us don't see them ever. But yeah, the ones we do have are some of the most lethal.

The US is much further down on the list but I live in a rural area and see venomous snakes every summer in my yard, garden, and nearby pond. Nearly everyone in this area has brown recluse spiders in their homes and places of business and I also see occasional black widow spiders outside. I know only one person who has been bitten by a venomous snake, but I know many (including my DIL) who have been bitten by brown recluse spiders. They hide in dark places including shoes, under bed covers, and in sleeves of clothing. I love winter here because there are no spiders or snakes for a few months. My guess is that people living in rural Australia would have similar experiences.

I don't know where Ander217 lives, but we have the same things here near Louisville, KY. We have cottonmouths, several types of rattlers and some very aggressive copperheads. I lost a great yellow lab to one a couple of years ago. Brown recluse and black widow spiders are very common and I have seen scorpions too.

Can confirm. I live in the Kansas/Missouri area and see brown recluses MUCH more than I would comfortably prefer, and know a handful of people that have gotten bit by them. Black widows are harder to find (just because that's how they are), but my dad got bit by one back when we lived in Texas. Haven't seen scorpions up in this area (though we had those in Texas too...and all sorts of other venomous things), but copperheads are pretty common. I used to work in landscaping and they were a frequent sight.

I was surprised by how little Africa featured on this quiz. Is there any reasons why huge, tropical countries like the DRC don't have that many venemous animals?

Note that the number given is number of different species--not total number of venemous animals. So DRC, for example, might have 60 ka-jillion-jillion black mambas, but they show up as ONE in this quiz, because they are all the same species. Same for Australia--they have a lower number of different species--but might have an astronomical number of those few species they do have. It would perhaps be more useful for travelers to know an estimate of the total number of things-that-might-kill-me each country has.

I would also postulate that most of tropical Africa hasn't been as well studied as Latin America. Haven't specifically dived into the data but I imagine that a lot of the countries with really high numbers have a lot of similar animals that were originally believed to be the same species but upon further investigation turned out to be separate species. Considering the numbers of it's neighbors I am surprised that Cambodia and New Guinea aren't on the list but since they are in large part a lot less studied than it's neighbors it is understandable given my previous explanation.

I think that the answers in this quiz are the result of imperfect data from some countries. Hard to believe that, if India and Myanmar are on the list, that Bangla Desh wouldn't be.

Most talk about Australia's deadly creatures is just that ....... talk. The vast majority of Australians have never seen any of these creatures. Deaths by Snake Bite since WW2 (72 years) = 28, Deaths by Crocodile (usually swimming against advice) 34. Deaths by Road Accidents since 1970 (47 years)= >70,000, Deaths at work last 12 years = 2000+. So driving to work and working is the biggest cause of accidental death in Australia. I'm going to stay at home.

Obviously, there would be fewer deaths by road accidents if people wouldn't transport snakes in their cars.
