King Cobra Anime Pavilion Nexon Game

The King Cobra is a type of snake Friend that appeared in the 2015 Nexon Mobile Game and the Kemono Friends anime.

Appearance

Like most reptile or snake friends, she wears a hood, with a scale-like pattern that has a pair of luminous yellow circles inside and glowing, narrowed yellow false-eyes outside. She has dark skin and amber eyes, and has a long blonde hair with a gradient purple that ends in two locks. Wears a yellow shirt under a dark-brown jacket and a black-purple gradient necktie, with a lightbrown shirt with a lighter line crossing it, as well as black pantyhose, or possibly a full bodysuit due the gloves, and wears a pair of beige-brown boots. Like the real animal, she bears a long brown tail gilded with golden bands, with light brown belly scales.

In Real Life

King cobras live mainly in the rain forests and plains of India, southern China, and Southeast Asia, and their coloring can vary greatly from region to region. They are comfortable in the trees, on land, and in water. The king cobra averages at 3 to 4 m (9.8 to 13.1 ft) in length and typically weighs about 6 kg (13 lb).

Although birds and mammals are sometimes taken, the favourite food of the king cobra is, surprisingly, other snakes. Pythons, tree snakes or other venomous species are all eaten. In captivity the species can be weaned onto more conventional food items such as rodents at an early age. King cobras have very good eyesight, and can see prey as far as 300 feet away. They also can flick their tongues to pick up scents. By combining these two different senses, king cobras are deadly predators. King cobras have two short fangs that they will use to inject venom into their victims. This will paralyze their victims and eventually kill them. Once the victims have been struck, king cobras will swallow them whole.
