Spitting Cobra

The spitting cobra is a fearsome-looking snake species, found in lowland forests and near bodies of water all over the Suwarnabumi region. Its skin is yellowish, brown or blackish, with solid black spots at the side of its neck. They measure up to about 3 feet in length. Spitting cobras feed on small rodents, birds, lizards and snakes. When disturbed, a spitting cobra will try to escape. If cornered, it will spray venom into the opponent's eyes, causing permanent blindness if left untreated.
