The king cobra is the longest venomous snake in the world. They can get up to 5.7 meters in length. The King Cobra is averagely 6kg and 3 to 4m in length. The skin of this snake is either olive-green, tan, or black, and it has faint, pale yellow cross bands down the length of the body. The belly is cream or pale yellow, and the scales are smooth. The King Cobra is found by its expandable hood. The king cobra lives in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and the southern areas of East Asia (where it is not common). It lives in highland forests, preferring areas dotted with lakes and streams. King cobra populations have dropped in some areas of its range because of the destruction of forests.
