The king cobra, one of the most venomous snakes in Asia and the longest venomous snake in the world, is responsible for numerous deaths each year in India and Sri Lanka, where between 15,000 and 60,000 people reportedly die from snake bites alone. The queen of the snakes chooses to live in tropical forests and dense bushland in South and Southeast Asia. The king cobra’s venom is incredibly potent and abundant due to its large size, as it can grow up to 5 meters or more in length. A single bite from this deadly snake can release enough venom to kill 20 adult men. What’s interesting about the king cobra is that it has the ability to control the dose of venom released, something other snakes cannot do. Apart from the king cobra, the so-called “big four” are also worth mentioning, as they are responsible for the majority of snake bite deaths. This group includes the brussels viper, the saw scale viper, the Indian cobra, and the common crate. The Indian cobra, also known as the “big four,” is another dangerous snake that should be avoided.
