2)reef shallows sea snake:



The Belchers Sea Snake is well known as being the most dangerous snake in the world, although this isn’t actually true, the most dangerous sea snake is actually the Reef Shallows Sea Snake. This snake lives deep underwater, and only grows to about 80 cm meaning it isn’t very dangerous to humans who live on the land. However since it’s so small t’s harder to see underwater, and it’s intense poison makes it very dangerous to anything it might bite.

It is more drop for drop venomous than even any sea snake, or any other reptile in the world. One of the most terrifying things about this snake is that it specialises in killing warm blooded mammals like us, it’s venom is potent enough to kill 100 men.
