Spectacled Cobra (Indian Cobra)

Snakes have a powerful hold over the human imagination. The first reaction most people have when they encounter one is fear. The fear of snakes, Ophidiophobia, can be conquered by knowledge. The vast majority of snakes are completely harmless to humans. Even those that are dangerous hardly ever attack unless provoked. The more we learn about these creatures, the more fascinating they become. Snakes are highly evolved predators, perfectly adapted for the lives that they lead. Some hunt in trees, some on the ground and others in the sea.

Active by day and by night, the cobra is one of India’s most common snakes. A good swimmer, this snake is seen in trees and fields and near streams, rock piles and granaries.
