Thank you all. :) It was rescued from one of the shops in our village.
@ Ingrid3, it is just looking out for a way to escape the paparazzi with the camera. This posture (open hooded) by cobra is usually in self defense... saying Back Off before it strikes. also associated by loud hissing.
Wonderful pic of this beautiful snake Karthik. I have never come across this beauty in the North Kanara distt. Maybe its not the distribution range?
Please consider sharing your awesome snake pics on the following mission.

:) MaxMacLennan, we actually have a very wrong notion of these snakes always ready to bite someone or the other. The truth is they strike only in self defense or when we move too close into their comfort zone. Most snakes prefer to just slither away in opposite direction when approached by any thing other than their prey or mate.
