Deadly, venomous Snakes are an entirely different story. King Cobras, found in the rain forests, bamboo thickets, mangroves, mountains, and rivers of the Philippines, carry enough venom to kill 20 humans or an adult elephant, while Philippine Cobras can spit venom up to 3 meters away with deadly accuracy. The neurotoxin in Cobra venom attacks the brain and nervous system and can result in cardiac and respiratory failure, leading to death.
