Lucky Berrypaw asks Brady Barr ‘why is the king cobra called a king cobra?’ in this week’s AJHQ+A.
The king cobra lives mainly in the forests of India, spreading slightly into forest areas of Southern China and Southeast Asia bordering India. The king cobra gets its name because it EATS other snakes, including the venomous varieties!
Did you know that the king cobra is the only snake that will build a nest for its eggs? It will arrange a bed of and cover about 40 eggs with leaves, during the egg laying season.
