Ilha da Queimada Grande in Portuguese, Snake Island is an island off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. And as the name implies - it is full of snakes. I mean seriously, a lot of snakes. It is estimated that there are between one and five snakes per square meter, with an estimation of 2,000 and 4,000 snakes in total. The snakes aren’t the nice types either - it is home to the bothrops insularis, a very poisonous viper. Technically with permission from the Brazilian Navy, it is possible to enter the island legally - but why would you want to do that?
