The deadliest place on earth: Snake Island in Austria

Ilha de Queimada Grande, better known as ‘Snake Island,’ is a tiny pocket of land off the coast of Brazil. Home to 4000 Golden Lancehead Vipers, one of the deadliest snakes in the world, the island is considered the most dangerous acreage on the planet. Humans are banned from visiting unless given special clearance. But on 60 Minutes, reporter Tara Brown journeys to the island with Australian molecular biologist and self-confessed snake geek, Bryan Fry as part of a research project studying the potential medical benefits of the snakes’ venom.
