This is amazing! In a BBC nature documentary, Steve Leonard introduces viewers to some of the animal world's deadliest predators. In this clip, he places a drop of snake venom in a cup of blood. Watch what happens to the blood within seconds.

Wow, I never thought it would be that quick! The explanation afterwards about what it does to a human is not really appetizing either. Truly a nasty way to die.

BTW, props to the cameraman. Guy was pretty close to that snake being milked... I'd probably just have settled for a jittery zoom-in from far, far away...
