In the world there are a lot of beautiful places where you should definitely visit everyone at least once in your life. There are those that are life-threatening. One such place is Snake Island. The magnificent nature, clear blue water could make it a wonderful resort. However, you will definitely not risk spending your vacation here. Here you will not find any fashionable hotels or shops. No one lives on the island: neither humans nor mammals. The whole territory is covered with forests and stones.
Locals knowingly called the island "Serpentine". Twelve thousand poisonous snakes
live here .
Among them there is one of the most poisonous - spearhead. Its poison, once in the body of a living creature, acts very quickly. It causes the death of tissues and, as a result, death. If you believe the statistics, then there are about five dangerous individuals per square meter of land. In this regard, the probability of death during a visit is incredibly high. In order to avoid accidents, the
authorities of Brazil forbade visiting the Snake Island. Brazil is very close, the island is only 35 kilometers from the state of Sao Paulo. Locals never visit him.
There is a lighthouse on the island. It works in automatic mode. Authorities have officially banned even approaching this damned place. Previously, rangers lived here, some even with families. However, they all died from snakebites. It was impossible to escape from reptiles. Even the tightly closed doors and windows did not help people. The story of one lover of tickling nerves is widely known. He sailed to Snake Island to taste bananas, he was not destined to sail home.
The local inhabitants are extremely aggressive. They skillfully camouflage and practically merge with grass, stones. They are able to remain motionless for a long time, waiting for a new victim.
The serpent island is not the only place where these dangerous creatures are found. They can be found in other places in South America. They are able to lurk in the grass and suddenly attack a person. It is easy to imagine what danger awaits anyone who arrives on the Snake Island.
The venom of local reptiles has a quick effect on the whole body. Under its influence, the protein begins to decompose, which causes almost instant death. This instant effect of the poison is due to the fact that birds are the main source of nutrition for snakes. In order that the victim could not fly away, she must be quickly immobilized. In addition to birds, snakes feed on lizards.
Snake Island is a truly hellish place. He would be perfect for the role of the scenery for horror films. And this characteristic is far from exaggerated. Daredevils, trying to approach the shore, could observe stones with tangles of snakes. Such a spectacle scares even the most fearless.
Despite the horror that Snake Island inspires people, it is unique, the largest natural serpentarium on Earth. At the request of environmentalists, the island since 1985 has been recognized as a nature reserve and taken under state protection.
