18. Western Diamonback Rattlesnake

Like others in the pit viper family, these snakes — found in the deserts of the west — lie in wait with heat sensors that tell them when prey is near. Diamondbacks have large venom glands and special fangs that deliver a huge dose of poison (250mg to 750mg) per bite. They can also go months without eating.
