Imagine an 18-foot king cobra packing enough venom to kill an adult elephant: even when decapitated its head has been known to bite and kill! -- as a house pet. See how this most regal of snakes lives in relative harmony -- unless you foolishly rile it up -- throughout the Indian Subcontinent and Africa. Watch antivenom being created from regularly milked cobras, snake-bite charmers engaged in a devil dance to save a bite victim and a battle royal pitting a furry marsh mongoose against a furious cobra. Cobra also shows you how the wily reptile forms its menacing hood, is charmed by motion and vibration, not sound, and can accurately shoot crippling venom straight in your eye. Charming, no?
