    Default Don't emigrate to Aussie - New death adder!

    Scientists have discovered a new species of deadly snake in Australia – the Kimberley death adder – adding to the nation’s world-beating list of venomous snakes.

    The venomous orange-brown snake – a “sit-and-wait” predator – has diamond-shaped scales and remains camouflaged before ambushing passing creatures such as birds, frogs and lizards, or potentially humans. It inhabits the remote Kimberley region of north-west Australia.

    The new species adds to the impressive list of poisonous creatures in Australia, which is believed to have 20 of the world's 25 most deadly snakes, including the entire top ten.
