Egyptian Cobra! Whatever you do, don't let him bite you!

Ono, Fuli's New Family

Cobras are snakes that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands and the Outlands.

Appearance

In the Real World

Egyptian cobras are relatively slender-bodied snakes. They have red or brown scales. Most cobra species are capable of attaining lengths of 1.84 m (6.0 ft). Maximum lengths for some of the larger species of cobras are around 3.1 m (10 ft), with the forest cobra arguably being the longest species of true cobra. [1] All have a characteristic ability to raise the front quarters of their bodies off the ground and flatten their necks to appear larger to a potential predator.[2]

In The Lion Guard

Egyptian Cobras in The Lion Guard bear the markings of Indian Cobras. Their scales are maroon with violet markings.

Information

Most cobras hunt at dawn or dusk although some species are known to forage during the heat of the day. Cobras, like other snakes, can go for days or even months without feeding – depending on the size of their last meal and their recent activity.

Although some species of cobra show more specialization in their preferred diets, most species are opportunists and will take whatever food is available including small mammals, birds, lizards, amphibians, other snakes, eggs and even carrion. Cobras are highly venomous snakes and all cobras regardless of species are potentially deadly. [3]

While most bite to defend themselves there are a few that spit or shoot their venom out from their fangs. These cobras are called spitting cobras. [4]
