Researchers estimate there are five snakes per square meter and everywhere is a mound of deadly snakes whose poison can melt the flesh of the human body.

Snakes are the most dangerous and creepiest species in the world. We are afraid when we see even one snake in our area, but what would happen if you got to visit a whole island of snakes? Let’s ask the editor and producer of the YouTube channel “VICE,” Rocco Castoro and Jackson Fager. These two explored “Snake Island” in Brazil for a documentary.

This island is located about 90 miles off the São Paulo coast. Its real name is Ilha da Queimada Grande. It’s one of the most beautiful places in Brazil, but no one dares to go there, and it’s untouched by human developers, for sure.

Researchers say that you might find five snakes per square meter, and it is a hub of 2,000 and 4,000 golden lancehead vipers, the deadliest snakes on Earth. These snakes can take the life out of humans in less than an hour, and their poison can melt the flesh of the human body.

When Castoro and Fager visited Snake Island, they weren’t even sure that they would live to see another day and called this island “another world.” (Source)
