People discovered a Monocled Cobra mating in their courtyard for several hours, which was later rescued: Odisha’s Bhadrak

The monocled cobra (Naja kaouthia) is a highly v.eno.mous snake that can be found in South and Southeast Asia. China, India, Vietnam, Nepal, and Cambodia, as well as Malaysia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand, are home to these a.ggres.sive and sometimes l.ethal snakes. The species is also known as the Monocellate cobra or Thai cobra, and it belongs to the Elapidae family.

The O-shaped, or monocellate hood pattern on the back of the monocled cobra’s hood gives it its popular name. It differs from the Indian cobra, also known as the spectacled cobra, which has a “spectacle” pattern produced by two circular ocelli joined by a curving line.

When t.hreatened, monocled cobras extend their elongated cervical ribs to produce the distinctive hood.

Normally, these cobras will retreat, but if they are t.hrea.tened, they will lift their body, expand their hood, hiss loudly, and then strike and b.ite to defend themselves.
