25 Most Dangerous Animals of 2017

#8 – Carpet Viper

Don’t panic – this snake doesn’t live in carpets and there is no need to take out the carpets in your home. Carpet vipers are snakes that are responsible for the majority of deaths caused by a snake bite. Although there is an antidote for the carpet viper’s venom, this snake lives in areas where medical facilities are hard to find, and if you get bitten by this snake, you’ll probably bleed slowly to death with no medical facility around you where you could get help.
