The king cobra is one of the most venomous snakes on the planet.
The cobra’s venom is not the strongest among venomous snakes, but the amount of poison they deliver in one bite is enough to kill 20 people or even an elephant.
King cobras live mainly in the rain forests and plains of India, southern China and Southeast Asia.
This species mainly eats other snakes including venomous and non-venomous snakes.
Recently, the Smithsonian channel shared a viral clip that captured the image of a female king cobra eating a smaller king cobra.
Another fascinating fact concerns the time when cobra eggs begin to hatch.
When food is scarce, the king cobra also eats other small vertebrates, such as birds and lizards.
Basically, when threatened, the king cobra wants to swallow its prey whole.
The average lifespan of a wild king cobra is about 20 years.
