The forest cobra (Naja melanoleuca), also called the black cobra and black and white-lipped cobra, is an elapid native to Africa, mostly the central and western parts of the continent. It is the largest true cobra species with a length up to 3.1 meters. Although it prefers lowland forest and moist savanna habitats, this cobra is highly adaptable and can be found in drier climates within its geographical range. It is a very capable swimmer and is often considered to be semi-aquatic. The forest cobra is a generalist in its feeding habits, having a highly varied diet: anything from large insects to small mammals and other reptiles. Order: Squamata, Suborder: Serpentes, Family: Elapidae.
