the place of 'more' in a comparative

Dear Linguaphiles,

Would you say (regardless of whether you think it's true or not...) 'Snakes are dangerous more than spiders are'?

Is it (much) worse than 'Snakes are more dangerous than spiders are'?

(And of course I know that both sound pretty odd and you'd probably just say 'Snakes are more dangerous than spiders', but unfortunately I'm only interested in the full sentences :P)

Thanks :)
