taipan definition and meaning

What is a "taipan"?

A taipan is a highly venomous snake native to Australia. It is known for its potent neurotoxic venom, which makes it one of the most dangerous snakes in the world. The taipan has a slender body and ranges in color from light brown to dark olive. It can grow up to several meters in length. The taipan is an extremely agile and fast-moving snake, capable of delivering multiple rapid bites in quick succession. Its venom attacks the nervous system, leading to paralysis and eventually, death if left untreated. Despite its dangerous nature, the taipan is generally shy and will typically avoid human contact if given the opportunity. It primarily preys on small mammals and birds.
