All About Spitting Cobra Bite

The Spitting Cobra, also known as the Naja Nigricollis, is a venomous snake in various parts of Africa.

It is known for its ability to spray venom up to a distance of two meters, hence its name, “spitting cobra.”

One of the primary reasons why spitting cobras may bite humans is as a defense mechanism.

These snakes are known to be territorial, and if they feel threatened by  a perceived predator (humans included), they may resort to spitting  venom to deter them.

Spitting cobras can accurately aim their venom up to distances of 2-3  meters, which means that even standing in a safe space might not be  enough to prevent a bite.

It is essential to be aware of the surroundings where spitting cobras reside and avoid disturbing or threatening them.

Native to Southeast Asia and Africa, the spitting cobra is a well-known venomous serpent that can cause serious harm to humans.

Although not considered the deadliest venomous snake, it can still inflict severe damage.

A spitting cobra bite can lead to various symptoms, ranging from immediate physical reactions to possible long-term damage.

One of the most noticeable symptoms of a spitting cobra bite is the pain.

The area around the bite may also become swollen, red, and tender.
