Everything about this place forbidden to humans – Snake Island.

SNAKE ISLAND – Ilha da Queimada Grande or also known as Snake Island off the coast of Brazil is off limits to humans due to these reasons.

Brazil has made it illegal for everyone to visit the most dangerous place on Earth, Ilha da Queimada Grande or also known as the Snake Island. This particular island off the coast of Brazil is off limits to humans and it was all for good reasons. There were about 2,000 to 4,000 snakes on the island, thus, unsurprising to be named as Snake Island.
