    Answer: Taipan anti venom, which is produced and manufactured by the Australian reptile park and the common wealth serum laboratories in melbourne.

    Explanation: The snake described is the inland Taipan snake, which is also known as the small scaled snake or the Pierce snake, it belongs to the family of the elapidae. This snake is the most dangerous of all snake and it venom is much more toxic than every other snake or reptile. It is far more toxic when compared to the sea snake.

    Snake anti venom are divided into two major type, which are the monovalent anti venom (used to treat snake bite from a specific specie) and polyvalent anti venom (used to treat snake bite from all type of species).

    This Taipan anti venom does not belong to any of this class, because the monovalent of it species cannot fight the venom of the snake, and the polyvalent which is used for all species cannot also fight the snake venom.
