King Cobra Venom

King Cobra - Venom
Despite not having the most potent venom (it as a lower toxicity than the majority of their relatives, the cobra), it has the ability to inoculate large quantities per bite, making it one of the most deadly snakes. In one bite it can inoculate up to 7 milliliters of its neurotoxic venom, enough to kill 20 people or even an elephant. A bite from this snake will bring in instant pain, blurred vision, vertigo and paralysis. Sometime after, cardiovascular and respiratory system will fail inducing coma and result in death.
