[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
King Cobra seem to need conditions of heavy rainfall and inhabit thick primary forests and estuarine mangrove swamps,Also encountered in tea estates is south india and state of Assam.Common in parts of Arunachal Pradesh and Andammans.
King Cobras are mainly Snake Eaters,but sometime kill and eat Monitor Lizards.this is only snake that build nests of dead leaves and stay with eggs until they hatch.
This Snake is the longest Venomous snake in the world.
King Cobra venom is much less toxic than Spectacled Cobra(Common Cobra),but it can inject huge quantities(up to 7 ml)at a time.the only antivenom serum formits bite is made in Thailand.
