The guy was cleaning up around the field hockey facility when he saw a snake that he thought was non venomous.

Sea snakes also have a very low venom yield, but not low enough that it can't kill you. Fortunately, they are very docile as a whole, especially the sea kraits.

I guess it depends on how you define 'most deadly'.
We have the winner of the world's most poisonous competition, the Inland Taipan.
I think 8 out the world's top 10 most poisonous snakes reside here.
But for most deadly as in most people killed by, I don't think Australian snakes top that list.
Most snake venom tests are done on mice which do not always react to snake venom like humans. The results from mice cannot be accurately extrapolated to humans. Nobody knows for sure which is the most deadly to a human as toxicity tests are not done on people for obvious reasons. Technically, the term poisonous is not correct. The correct term is venomous.

Well we know its not a leg less lizard.

I remember when someone died lifting up a bucket that was over turned in the garden.

One of the locals he was 66 poor guy

He's just unlucky. Most snakes don't attack you unless its a Tiger snake. Those bastards go straight for you.

Had to wait one out in a tree after being chased by one !

It's true. And most Australian kids are taught not to venture into tall dry grass in summer if it can be avoided. I know I was. If they have to go through it, to have "snake" very much at the forefront of their minds.:)
Looks like adelaide education was better than sydney. I was not told nothing about snakes at school. I learned about it myself.But like most things in education in Aus, they have since improved, kids now get told

Hey that's cheating, we weren't talking about them, lol.
Most of what they eat has spines that need to be put out of action fast before being swallowed.

True, mice results are probably only used as a sort of risk measure for humans, though I think I'll take their word for it without testing any theories myself.

Interesting, thanks.
Wow, 2 - 4 here verses 10,000 - 12,000 in India, I thought maybe South America or Africa was the highest, that's one list I guess we should be thankful to be on the bottom of.

Talking of critters venomous, I had my own encounter yesterday.

While at my computer I briefly saw a movement out of the corner of my eye. When I looked whatever it was had vanished. Later it reappeared. It was an "Inch Ant" that had strayed indoors. Its name is no exaggeration!

Sitting here in flip-flops I didn't fancy losing track of it again. I got bitten on the arm by an Inch Ant once before and my arm swelled up like a football with a skin texture like Orange Peel. It took a week to subside.

So I took off a Flip Flop and bashed the buggar. Wounded but still very alive and displeased it fell off the table edge onto the carpet. I knew that it would be hard to finish off while there. So I grabbed a tissue, folded it a few times and closed it over the Inch Ant to finish it off with a squeeze.

I had evidently seized it by its upper body. It must have arched and a moment later my ring-fingertip seemed to burst into fire. That's when I remembered that its sting is in its tail.

Fortunately I disengaged it VERY quickly and finished it off. My finger stopped burning after about an hour. If it had succeeded in delivering a full dose I would have been making "typos" here for a week. lol!

Here is some info on the blighter:

As far as venom suseptiblity is concerned, funnel web spider bites are more dangerous to humans than many smaller animals. Pound for pound, cats have much more immunity to most venomous snakebites than dogs. If they were to do tests on monkeys, that would be more representative of humans as they are much more like humans, genetically than mice or rats. LD50 tests on mice are very likely unreliable as an indicator of toxicity to humans.
