Species: ophiophagus hannah (juvenile)
Location: Pahang, Malaysia
Description: The King Cobra (ophiophagus hannah) is the world's longest venomous snake. It feeds almost exclusively on other snakes, sometimes even it's own kind. The one featured here is a juvenile. As it matures, it loses the black and yellow stripes and has a more uniform color. Juveniles are considered to be more dangerous than adults as they inject the maximum volume of venom in a bite.
