5. Mozambique Spitting Cobra
Native to Africa, Mozambique spitting cobra is the second deadliest snake in Africa. The bitten area will have a localized tissue necrosis and will result to amputation or removal of that body part. When venom gets contact with the eyes, it can cause blurred vision and even blindness. It can stand up to two-thirds of its body length and spit venom for 2-3 meters. It prefers to spit venom rather than biting and will even play dead to prevent further confrontation. When in a confined area like a tube the reptile will bite instead of spit. This is due to its aggressiveness.
