Black spitting cobra

The black spitting cobra is a venomous species of snake found in Indonesia. When threatened, the snake will rear up and flatten its neck to appear larger and more threatening. While focusing on a predator, the cobra will shoot venom from its fangs at a predator's eyes allowing the snake to escape.
