Animal Project: King Cobra

The King Cobra can inject huge amounts of poison in a single bite, enough to kill a large elephant. The king cobra is the world’s longest venomous snake, with a length up to 5.6 m (18.5 ft). This species is found predominantly in forests from India through Southeast Asia to the Philippines and Indonesia. In this project I use Japanese artist Sachiko Umoto King Cobra, here illustration books are available at
