What Is a Spitting Cobra?
A spitting cobra is a member of the Elapidae family of venomous snakes. There are many different species of spitting cobra in various sizes, colors, and patterns, with diets that generally include amphibians, birds, and small mammals, though some will eat lizards or other snakes. They are named for their ability to project venom from the fangs into the face of an enemy. This ability is used as a defense mechanism against attackers, not as a method of disabling prey. Species of spitting cobra are found in many countries, mostly in tropical or subtropical regions.
