cobra's main enemy is the zebra mongoose. The mongoose
is built for snake-fighting. They are 98% effective
in killing their cobra pray because they are fast,
agile and have a thich coat that protects them from
the snake venom. Cobra skins are highly valuable
as an exotic leather and there is no protective
legislation for the king cobra. A cobra's meal may
last a very long time. This snake can survive on
little food just like other snakes because it doesn't
need much food to maintain a steady body temperature
and can remain in active for long periods of time.
The Cobra can also store tons of body body to live
off of. Cobras often feeds on eggs and chicks raided
from poultry houses, in addition to small mammals,
toads, lizards, birds and other snakes.
