Largest Spitting Cobra Ever 

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.

Nestled in the heart of Africa, the largest spitting cobra ever recorded hails from the savannahs and woodlands of the continent.

Towering above its kin, this awe-inspiring serpent can reach lengths of up to 2.5 meters

Thus, making it a true titan in the world of cobras.

Found primarily in regions like Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia
