The King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) is the world's longest venomous snake, growing to a length of 5.6 m (18.5 ft) and generally weighing around 9 kg (20 lbs). This species is quite widespread, ranging throughout south-eastern Asia and into India. Its genus name, Ophiophagus, literally means "snake-eater", and its diet primarily consists of other snakes, including sizeable pythons and even smaller members of its own species. The venom of the King Cobra is primarily neurotoxic, and the snake is fully capable of killing a human with a single bite. The mortality rate can be as high as 75%; but most bites actually involve non-fatal amounts of venom.
