Indian Cobra – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Indian Cobra:

The Indian Cobra - also called the Spectacled or Asian Cobra - is a venomous reptile native to the plains, jungles and open fields of the Indian Subcontinent. It is part of the "Big Four" which are the snakes that inflict the most bites. They are large snakes, growing on average to about six feet long (2 meters) although they can grow larger. The venom of this snake contains a very powerful neurotoxin and cardiotoxin. This venom acts on the synaptic gaps of the nerves, thereby paralyzing muscles. Bites that are not treated with anti-venom can lead to respiratory failure or cardiac arrest. As well as being noted for it's role in the Indian snake charmer, it is also a highly revered animal in Indian mythology and was also immortalized in the Rudyard Kipling story "Rikki-tikki-tavi."
