king cobra facts

The cobra snake (Naga, Indian cobra, Indian snake) is a venomous snake native to
the Indian subcontinent. Although its venom is not as deadly as the Indian krait
and it is not as aggressive as Russell’s viper, most people in India die from the
bite of this snake because it is found in abundance everywhere. Rats are its main
diet, due to which it is often found more around human settlements, in fields, and
on the outskirts of urban areas.

Cobra is one of those species of venomous snakes that spread the ribs of the neck to form a hood.
Although the fun cobra is a characteristic of the snake, its various species are not
closely related. By the way, cobras are found from Southern Africa to southern Asia
and in the islands of Southeast Asia.

Cobra Venom

Cobra is an extremely venomous snake whose front small venomous teeth spew
venom. The potent neurotoxin venom of the Indian snake is found in synaptic
neurotoxins and deadly venom called cardiotoxins. This poison paralyzes the
nervous system of the victim, paralyzing the body. Due to its bite, foam starts
coming out of the mouth and the eyesight becomes blurred. If not treated on
time, its victim becomes blind and eventually dies.

The length of an adult snake can range from 1 m to 1.5 m (3.3 to 4.9 ft). Some
species from Sri Lanka grow to about 2.1 m to 2.2 m (6.9 to 7.9 ft) but this is rare.
Most people consider Cobra (Nag) and King Cobra (Nagraj) to be the same snake
but this is not true. Nagraj (king cobra) is actually one of the longest venomous
snakes found in the Indian subcontinent, which is not originally related to the
cobra species.
