    Present Cobra King cobras are protected in India, but they are not internationally listed as endangered, only vulnerable. Although there is some evidence of decline, there are currently no cobra species listed as endangered. There is some indication that various species of cobras have been released in southern Florida but, unlike the established Burmese python, there is no evidence yet of breeding populations.
