The king cobra is one of the most feared snakes in the world. One bite from this venomous snake can lead to death straight away. Eighteen feet and 5.5 meters in length make the cobra arguably one of the deadly snakes of the world. Their venom is not the most powerful of all snakes but they are stored with enough neurotoxin that can kill 20 people or even take down a grown up elephant. However king cobras are shy creatures they try to avoid humans as much as they can.

The king cobra is one of the most feared snakes in the world. One bite from this venomous snake can lead to death straight away. Eighteen feet and 5.5 meters in length make the King cobra arguably one of the deadly snakes of the world. Their venom is not the most powerful of all snakes but they are stored with enough neurotoxin that can kill 20 people or even take down a grown up elephant. However king cobras are shy creatures they try to avoid humans as much as they can.

Cobras are mostly to be found in southern china, south East Asia and in the rainforests. They prey on rabbits, rodents, eggs and other snakes at times. A fact to consider is that the king Cobra is the only snake in the world that looks after their eggs by creating nests. During that time they will attack any animal that comes too close.

Six times a year a king cobra will exchange their skin with a new one. Some king cobras are coloured brown and glowing black but really it depends on where their habitat is from. The king cobra is known for its ferocious and aggressive attitude, also lethal fangs. They are intelligent snakes that are more likely to avoid people than attack them. Cobras communicate and find potential partners by throwing scent at each other in order to breed. The queen snake can make around 30 eggs or so and will take good care during that time. The queen cobra bite is as lethal as the king cobra.

Their digestive system is very interesting they can swallow food entirely. A king cobra meal will travel form the little intestine to the larger intestine tube. They can live up to 10 to twenty years and once fully grown they can reach twenty pounds in weight. When these aggressive snakes stand up and flatten their necks they have a hood like appearance which allows them to be recognized easily to many people across the globe. They are known to live in lakes, streams, and dense forests. King cobras face extinction because many of their habitats are becoming destroyed which threatens their survival.

Also another fact to be recognized is that the name king cobra is actually ophiophagus Hannah. The name of this reptile ophiophagus means snake eater. Capable of being active day and night and very rarely sighted makes this venomous snake one to watch out. Many Indians consider this snake as a symbol of destruction power strength and they have even put pictures in their sacred places.
