Australia is home to around 140 species of land snakes, and 21 of the world's 25 most venomous species call the island continent home. For people with ophidiophobia, this can be a serious point of concern. Indeed, many tourists fret over Australia's snake population, despite the fact that snakes are rarely found in suburban and city areas. Luckily, most of the world's snakes - Australian species being no exception - prefer to avoid humans, and for this reason, reported snake bites are quite rare. In fact, most snake bites are provoked, so leaving a snake alone is the best repellent.

This FACT indicates the number of top 25 most venomous snake species that are present with each state and territory.
