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.
