The head of a huge King Cobra, the world’s largest venomous snake, is the size of a man’s hand. The king cobra is much more cautious than many lesser snakes, despite its reputation for aggression. The cobra strikes out at humans when trapped, acting in self-defense or defending its eggs.
Venomous snakes called king cobras are found in South and Southeast Asia. The reptile lives in wetlands and woodlands. It has a maximum length of 5.5 metres (18 feet). Additionally, the animal can kill an elephant with one toxic bite. The IUCN presently classifies them as “Vulnerable.”
