Mozambican Spitting Cobra

Naja mossambica


A long snake of an olive-brown color, with a few darker bands on it's throat.


Found on our doorstep, usually living in grasslands or bushveld.


Often found in our area, and often relocated by our family as they pose a threat to our family and the dogs, though when they are not bothering anyone or don't come into the house they are left alone to control the rodent population.
