We've got the snake game pretty good too, although Asia have a good mix of big Boas and cobras. Here's a list of the 10 most venomous snakes ('scuse the formatting)
Most venomous land snakes (Ernst and Zug et al. 1996)

I'm going to have to go with Africa overall.
We've had 5 fatal Great White Shark attacks in my state this year too
They're worldwide but seem to be here an awful lot lately.
