On the south of São Paulo, there is located a small island, covered with dense forests. It occupies an area of 0.43 km². It is known mainly because of the large number of snakes living there.
Apparently it is a home to the 4000 most dangerous snakes in the world!
Sightseeing Queimada Grande (Snakes Island) is forbidden by Brazilian government.
It is inhabited by one of the most dangerous snakes – Bothrops jararaca.
Snakes feed on migratory birds. Apparently, there are 5 snakes per one square metre!
You do not want to be there!
