Comments for King Cobra on Lunch Break
Nov 25, 2010tim_h says:
Cool photo, but it's not a King Cobra. The neck marking indicate it is a Spectacled or possibly Monacled cobra. King Cobras also feed almost exclusively on other snakes, and lunch doesn't look like a snake to me.

What is he eating? from the tail it looks like a cameleon?

Not quite sure, om, maybe some kind of a lizard. Whatever it was, it disappeared from view in around fifteen minutes! Incredible...

From the small size I could not make out it was a cobra. Rare sight.
Nov 26, 2010tim_h says:
How big was it?

Around one and a half metres (four or five feet).
