King cobra (Ophiophagus hannah)

King cobras are the longest of all the venomous snakes. Lengths of up to five metres are not unheard of, although, a mere three metres is more realistic. Preying on other reptiles - particularly other snakes - king cobras have a rapid, deadly strike. The venom isn't as strong as some snakes, but enough is produced in a single bite to kill a fully grown elephant. When threatened, a hypnotic display sees the king cobra raise itself up, growl and extend its hood. This majestic snake is one of the most dangerous and feared snakes to inhabit the forests of Asia.
