Taipan | by denn
Back to photostream


This docile creature, dear friends, is a Coastal Taipan - it grows up to 2.8 metres long, is very fast, and is the second most venomous snake in Australia.


The *most* venomous snake in Australia, incidentally, happens to be the Inland Taipan, which is also the most venomous snake in the world...


It would not be a bad idea to start running if you should happen to meet one.
