Death Adder

About Death Adder

The Death Adder is actually a member of the cobra family. It is called the Death Adder because it strikes instantly if disturbed. People often used to die after being bitten by this snake because no antedote was available.

This snake usually spends its day coiled up in loose soil or in fallen leaves. Instead of hunting, the Death Adder lays in wait for its prey. It feeds on birds, snakes and rodents.
