There are several species of spitting cobras, the King Cobra is not one of them. Black-Necked Spitting Cobra Black Spitting Cobra Western Barred Spitting Cobra Red Spi…tting Cobra Mozambique Spitting Cobra Malaysian Spitting Cobra Black and White Spitting Cobra Sumatran Spitting Cobra Nubian Spitting Cobra
The spitting cobra projects venom by forcing it out at high speed from its front fangs.
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.
Spitting Cobra venom is extremely toxic. Certainly if it were to enter the eye it blinds. If it is ingested then it would be extremely serious,
No, they just spit at you for the fun of it. (Yes, they spit venom at you) ---- Yes, it is venomous snake... Spitting Cobra is one of several species of cobras that have… the ability to eject venom from their fangs when defending themselves against predators.
No, King Cobras cannot spit venom. Only spitting cobras can. they inject venom
King cobras do not spit venom (lucky for us) but the spitting cobra species can spray their venom to a distance of 2 meters (over 6 and a half feet) as well as deliver it thro…ugh a bite. So...if you see one of these guys, run the hell away.
no it just generates more venom but this takes quite some time
There is a tiny hole at the base of the fang - where it leaves the gums. Muscular contractions force the venom through the hole - and it's usually aimed at the attackers eyes.…
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.
Despite their name, these snakes do not actually spit their venom. The venom sprays out in distinctive geometric patterns, using muscular contractions upon the venom glands. T…hese muscles squeeze the glands and force the venom out through forward-facing holes at the tips of the fangs. The explanation that a large gust of air is expelled from the lung to propel the venom forward has been proven wrong.
go straight to the hospital.
