Basically an affordable Death Adder Hatchling.
They're plentiful near Valdisdall in Stormheim, but I must have tried at least 30 of them before I came across an S/S.
For battling, this is effectively identical to the Death Adder Hatchling. The stats are the same. The Taipan replaces Burrow with Paralyzing Venom, but with Blinding Poison as the other choice in that slot, there are not many cases where you will care. Since the nerf, the DAH is not the predator it once was, but with the 341 speed, it can still surprise people.
A new Death Adder Hatchling!!! But wait... this time it has the ability to paralyze you ^_^ damage and an interrupt yay!
