King Cobra or Hamadryad
About King Cobra or Hamadryad
The King Cobra is the biggest venomous snake in the world. The largest ever recorded was measured at almost 18 feet (5.5m). Their diet consists entirely of other snakes.
When a King Cobra attacks, it produces a large amount of poisonous venom. They can reach more than 6 feet (2m) when they attack. This snake has a warning sign when it is about to attack: It will spread is hood, making its head look larger than it is.
When they breed, the female makes a nest of sticks and leaves and sits on top of her eggs until her young hatch. She lays around 40 eggs at a time.
