Coastal Taipan

The coastal taipan (Oxyuranus scutellatus) is one the most venomous snakes in the World. Taken at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, NSW, Australia. This has been linked to by some blogs as a fierce snake, but it is not. THIS IS NOT A FIERCE SNAKE. Fierce snakes are inland taipans, a different species Oxyuranus microlepidotus.
