The King Cobra

Today's reptile is the legendary king cobra.  The king cobra is the worlds largest venomous snake, and can grow up to as long as 18.5 feet.  The king cobra is a fierce reptile, ready to defend its territory at any moment.  The king cobra has a deadly venom, and could kill a human with a single bite.  King cobras can have a skin color of olive, tan, or black.  The male is larger and thicker then the female.  The average lifespan of the king cobra is 20 years.  The average king cobra lives throughout South and Southeast Asia, but is not common.  It lives in dense forest areas.  Here are some pictures.


Don't mess with these things, they'll destroy you.
