The King Cobra is a species of venomous snake in the family Elapidae. The cobra is found predominantly in forests from India through Southeast Asia.

Being the world’s longest venomous snake, the King Cobra can grow up to 4m long. In this documentary, you will come eye-to-eye with the longest venomous snake. And you will find out why it is the reptile of choice for exotic snake charmers.

The King Cobra preys chiefly on other snakes, and sometimes on other vertebrates like rodents and lizards.

The skin of the King Cobra is what separates it from other snakes. The skin is dark olive or brown with black bands and white or yellow crossbands. Usually, the head is black with two crossbars nearthe snout and two behind the eyes.

The longest known individual measured snake is 5.85m (19.2ft). And while it prays on other snakes, the King Cobra can last several days without a meal. That is because mature cobras have slow metabolism.
