03. Death Adder:
The death adder is considered one of the most venomous snakes in the world, surpassed only by few species, among them other famous Australian snakes, like the inland taipan. Early Australian settlers called them the “deaf adder” due to their ambush hunting style and the fact they would stay motionless if approached, leading to the idea that these snakes couldn’t hear. However, like other snakes, the death adder is, in fact, capable of perceiving ground vibrations.
Death adders are mainly nocturnal and terrestrial animals, they usually remain under cover during the day, very often close to pathways where small animals and people commonly wander. This type of snakes usually rely on their camouflage and remain still, but if provoked they flatten their body in a coiled position and will strike swiftly, only if this fails it resorts to escape.
The genus name, Acanthophis, derives from the Ancient Greek acanthos meaning “spine” and ophis witch means “snake”, and refers to the spine found in its tail.
The death adders have a very similar appearance to vipers or pit vipers, with a short and robust body, narrow neck, triangular shaped head and a tail spine. There is a slight sexual dimorphism with females being marginally larger than the males, the species reaches adult size at 2 or 3 years of age.
The several species reach adult sizes ranging from 1,15 ft (35 cm) for the smaller and slender bodied Pilbara Death Adder (Acanthophis wellsei) to a maximum of 4,25 ft (130 cm) for the Barkly Tableland Death Adder (Acanthophis hawkei). But death adders usually don’t reach more than 3,25 ft (100 cm).
