It’s actually got the word ‘death’ in it’s name. One thing that makes the Death Adder unique is that it is consider to be an ‘active hunter’. What this means is that this snake is actually looking and waiting for something to bite, kill and eat. If you happen to get bitten by a Death Adder you had better be prepared with the antivenom or things will deteriorate quickly ultimately leading to death. Bite victims will experience pain, paralysis, respiratory failure and death usually occurs within 48 hrs.
