VENOMOUS SNAKE DANGERS - SPITTING COBRA CLOSEUP! - SCARY!

The Spitting Cobra is most renowned for their infamously remarkable spitting fangs that allow the cobra to actually spray venom accurately into the face and eyes of predators and trampling herds. When the cobra wants to “Spit” or “Spray” its venom at a threat, it “Hoods Up”, aims its open mouth as specialized muscles contract the Venom Gland, forcing the Cobra's Venom out through its fangs.

Spitting cobras are extremely accurate at distances over 10 feet. Some scientists theorize that the “Spitting Behavior” and evolution of the fang modifications were a result of the fact that Spitting cobras cohabitate with numerous antelope species. These scientists believe that the primary function of Spitting cobra fangs is to deter being trampled by antelope hooves. The Cobra is well equipped to spray its painful venom directly into the eyes of potential trampling animals from a safe distance. This theory is almost identical to the theory of the evolution of the “Rattlesnake Rattle” on rattlesnakes. Scientists speculate that the rattle’s main function was to alert buffalo and other grazing North American animal to their presence in order to avoid being trampled by their feet.
