Do spitting king cobras spit venom?
No. Only the snakes known as spitting cobras can spit venom.
no it just generates more venom but this takes quite some time
First, King Cobras do not 'spit' venom. There are several species of 'Spitting Cobras' that can spray (not spit) deadly venom from holes on the front of their fangs up to abou…t 6 feet or so. The venom is harmless if it hits healthy skin, but in the eyes it causes excruciating pain and a quick death if there is no antivenin available to inject in the victim. Marlin Perkins, head of the St Lous zoo was thus attacked, and only lived because the zoo workers had a supply of antivenin close at hand. To answer your question, spitting cobras spray venom to protect themselves from predators.
No, they inject venom thru the two front fangs that are hollow. The venom comes from venom sacks...younger rattle snakes inject more venom than older snakes due to an immature… response reaction so these bites are more dangerous.
they eat lizards, rodents, snakes, frogs, and birds
The Spitting Cobra uses muscle contractions to re-direct the venom out of tiny holes at the base of the fangs. This propels a stream of venom forwards - and is usually directe…d towards the eyes as a defence. During 'normal' use, the venom is sent to the tip of the fangs for injection into prey.
no way.. king cobra are the largest venomous snakes, they are specalised in preying on other snakes and are immune to the other snakes' venom. In addition to that all snakes …have a transparent cover on their eyes so the spitter's venom wont blind the king cobra. in a battle b/w a king cobra and and the spitting cobra, king cobra will easily kill and devour the spitter...

There are spitting cobras and king cobras, but there aren't any spitting king cobras. Their scientific names are Ophiophagus Hannah (the king cobra), and there are at least 6 …species of spitting cobras. These are Naja nigricollis, Naja siamensis, Naja pallida, Naja nubiae, Naja mossambica, and Naja ashei. King cobras and spitting cobras belong to separate genera (the king cobra is from the Ophiophagus genus and spitting cobras are from the Naja genus), but they both belong to the Elapidae family of snakes. The Elapidae family belongs to the Alethinophidia infraorder, the Serpentes suborder, the Squamata order, and the class Reptilia.
There are several species of spitting cobras, the King Cobra is not one of them.

King Cobra's cannot spit its venom only spitting cobra's can. Like the red Spitting Cobra, King Cobra's are not true cobra's their genus is Ophiophagus which means snake-eater… in greek which their main diet is other snakes, true cobras genus is Naja. Spitting cobra's are true cobra's cause there genus is Naja. This answer was improved by murfdog221.
This species is the most common cobra of the savanna regions of the tropical and subtropical Africa
to blind the predator or just to stun it so the cobra can escape NNRB
