Without immediate care a person bit by a saw scaled viper could die within the hour or less.

Around 4,000 to 5,000 people are killed by the saw scaled viper snake each year.

The deadliest snake in the world is the saw-scaled viper snake which is the deadliest of all snakes, since scientists believe it to be responsible for more human deaths than all other snake species combined.

The Saw scaled viper snakes venom, however, is lethal in less than 10 percent of untreated victims, but the snake's aggressiveness means it bites early and often.
