deadliest snake

Sorry to say this, but Kelly Slater and other surfers saying that sharks should be culled in big numbers are in the wrong. In the last 10 years 80 people have been killed by sharks. That’s not a huge imbalance or a big threat. There are areas where a handful attacks by sharks on humans happen every year and people are warned to not enter these waters. (The area which Kelly Slater talks about apparently saw 20 attacks since 2011, 8 of them deadly.) Yet that is still such a small number, compared to real common threats. More people get killed by dogs every single year. (Apparently 25.000 a year.) No one asks that all dogs should be killed. And are surfers forgetting that the ocean is the natural environment of sharks and NOT of humans?

You are entering the natural habitat of a dangerous (because of its anatomy, not because it loves to attack humans) animal, that can kill you if it mistakenly attacks you, and then you call for it to be extinct, so you can have some fun. That’s pretty ironic…


1. CODENAME : BLACK MAMBA. Black Mamba’s are one of the deadliest snakes in the world, known for its venom to be extremely potent. A 45-minute window is all it need for a human to collapse from only a single bite. Mia was part of a team known as Medusa, the Greek monster. As the overall theme of the entire division of what Pandora makes up. It only made sense that the women in the team come up with codenames that match their team name. Mia chose black mamba, if not for its potent venom but for its noticeable black tar-like mouth. It is also an ode to Kill Bill as it is a guilty pleasure. 

2. ALIAS : JACQUELINE MURPHY.  Mia’s non-criminal name, a general pseudonym that has zero criminal activity linked to it. An alternate identity ; an Irish / Italian woman in her late 20′s who was born and raised in Boston. Moved to New York City in 2011 and currently attends Hunter College, majoring in Art History. Work at a full-time job as a tour guide for The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Occasionally travels to Florence, Italy. 

3. ALIAS : VANESSA DAVIDSON. Another non-criminal name, generally used for banks, mortgages— mostly for financial documents. Though she does occasionally split it between this alias and Jacqueline. Born in Bayside, Queens and residing in Astoria, she owns a small indie café in the East Villiage and travels often

4. CODENAME : THE PROBLEM SOLVER. A professional pseudonym for her business. It is the name that protects Mia’s real identity from those who are looking for her. In a sense, this is the only name you / the muse would know of. You will not know her as Mia and you will not address her as such unless you know her previously OR she trusts you enough that she gives you her actual name. 

5. ALIAS : ROSABELLA GORI. An Italian-born woman with U.S and U.K citizenship. Works as an Intonational Liasion Officer as an Intelligence Analyst for government agencies. Strictly borrowed help as she works for a government run Intelligence Agency.

They Call Them Trinity - Chapter 4

Hello dearest! This week the chapter is slightly shorter than usual, but I hope you’ll still feel satisfied. I have been advised to put a trigger warning for violence and torture, so here it is - I guess that’s fair.

Hugs and pats to hartfic and dabblingdabbler for the betaproofreading!

This is a SFW, NSFF (I guess, I can never tell ‘cause I am a stonecold bitch with two inches of fur on my stomach) and I lied for 3,218 words.

“Don’t move. You’re surrounded.”

More steps approach, Grace counts at least 7 people, but they could be more. There’s a thud, and the night somehow becomes darker. As she falls on the ground, Grace wonders if this sleep will be dreamless at last.

- - -

She is awaken by a particularly rough jolt.

“Hey.” She hears.

Her head is pounding and her hands are tied behind her back. She is sitting on a hard, moving surface. She blinks repeatedly, until her eyes finally focus on a worried face framed by blonde, short hair.

“Han.” Grace can taste the blood in her own mouth as she calls her name.

“Hey, it’s okay, it’s all good.” Hannah is sitting in front of her, and for some reason she thinks she needs to reassure her. Grace smiles weakly, her head dropping forward, still heavy after the hit. “Grace! Stay with me, babe.”

“Babe?” She scoffs.

“Mh, sorry” Hannah giggles, “Glad you’re okay.”

Australia’s deadliest snake…..the eastern brown snake.
Based on venom toxicity alone the inland taipan is the deadliest, but based on other features such as aggressiveness, venom toxicity, distribution and number of human fatalities the eastern brown snake has killed more people in Australia than all other species of snake put together.

homeschool-winner  asked:

Do you know why the idea that everything is more deadly in Australia has become so common, or if it has any truth to it? I know stuff like Black Widows and Brown Recluses are not too bad, but are Australian spiders really as venomous and deadly as rumored?

The Sydney funnelweb is a fairly “dangerous” spider, but its reputation still exaggerated. Australia is, however, home to several of the deadliest snakes, its shores are home to some of the deadliest jellyfish and cone snails, and it has some extremely common birds that actually attack and injure people - so much so that I’ve heard from Australians who just assumed that even people in other countries get attacked regularly by birds, they have no idea that a bird attack to most people is like a once-in-a-lifetime hilarious tale to tell.
