How does a spitting cobra use its spit to protect itself?
It uses its "spit", or venom, to paralyse other animals that are attacking or threatening it. For example, if a fox were to approach the spitting cobra, the cobra will spit at the fox to keep it away. This keeps the cobra safe and protected from the fox.
It aims its venomous spit at the attackers eyes partially or even permanently blinding them. If it misses the spit is usually enough warning for the attacker and it will probably leave it alone.
