Snakes on a Plane question

I saw this movie for the first time on Syfy. I know some of the snakes were more harmless than the actors and producers led viewers, but it was still fun to watch, and the beauty of it is that it was one of those movies where no snakes were actually harmed. Plus, I'm no expert when it comes to identifying dangerous ones; but that didn't matter and made the movie more interesting. Anyway is there any truth to what they said about how soon a person could die after a bite from some snakes? Is it really possible for someone to die only two or seven minutes later?
God bless, Jason Scott Irelan

Hey, for future notice, there is a question forum for things like this. Some of the quickest acting venoms that I know of are the Black Mambas, which without treatment results in a possible fatality in 15 minutes to 3 hours. Although less documented, there are stories of Malaysian Coral snakes killing in ten minutes, and Gaboon vipers killing in 15. The movie was most likely dramatised, but hey, it makes it more fun for the watcher. Hope this helps.

Thank you kindly. Are you related to Jake Hess who sang with the Gaithers?

I heard There was a case of a king cobra killing a person in 12 minutes after envenomation

It's possible but it would be from anaphylaxis and not directly from the venom.

So as in a person who is fatally allergic to one bee sting would die a lot sooner than most people?

Unfortunately, moving it didn't get my last question answered.

It was moved because it wasn't placed correctly, and sorry for the late response. It really depends, if you are fatally allergic to a bee sting you would be from anaphylactic shock, you COULD be more susceptible to a bite if it was the same type of venom that the bee gives (neurotoxin hemotoxin)
