The largest of all venomous snakes, cobras can grow up to 18 feet long. Their hood is actually a controllable elongation of their neck ribs that they use to appear larger when they feel threatened. Cobras are very important to the medical field, as the study of their venom has not only produced treatment for various cobra bites, but has produced antivenin for other snake bites as well.

There are over 270 types of cobras and the King Cobra is the longest at 12-18 feet in length. Cobras defend themselves by extending certain ribs to create a "hood" in order to appear larger. They inject poison into their prey through their fangs and one species can spray venom up to 8 feet away!
