Snake Dinodon meridionale: “The King with the fastest bite” Vietnam. np
Dubbed the “speed king with the fastest bite” in the snake world in Vietnam, Dinodon meridionale is the “horror” of nocturnal animals.
In the animal world, snakes are animals that are endowed with the ultimate hunting ability.
Possessing deadly venom, the ability to move cannot be softer, with extremely sensitive hearing and extremely fast attack speed, make them a “terrible obsession” of not only animals but also humans.

According to the behavior, there are snake species that specialize in hunting during the day, but there are also species that specialize in hunting at night.
The snake that we mention in this article has the scientific name of Dinodon meridionale , its Vietnamese name is Snake deviating from the meridian head.

Among more than 200 species of snakes (both on land and in the sea) discovered, biologists rate Dinodon meridionale as “the king of speed with the fastest bite” in the snake world in Vietnam.

When the thick black night covers the whole space, these “dark deaths” have the ability to sniff out this extremely sensitive prey to begin their hunting journey.
This means, they send their unfortunate victims to the dead!
Extremely sensitive long tongue for Dinodon meridionale to track and detect prey.
When they detect prey, they will “stand still” to monitor the victim’s movements before crouching to gain momentum to launch a deadly lightning-fast bite.
Their favorite habitat is in dense forests, near shallow streams. Their favorite foods are mice, birds, lizards…
If the Dinodon meridionale snake found in Vietnam is the species with the fastest bite speed, the Black Mamba snake found in Africa is the fastest moving species in the snake world.
This black oral cavity is why they are called Black Mamba.
With a hunting speed of up to 4.5 meters per second, the Black Mamba is considered the “horror” of the African people.
This species is capable of killing 80 adults at a time in just the first fierce “snap” .
