Sunset Monocled Cobra Snake with Acme Animals

The monocled cobra has an O-shaped, or monocellate hood pattern, unlike that of the Indian cobra. Coloration in young is more constant. They are olivaceous or brownish to black above with or without a yellow or orange-coloured O-shaped mark upon the hood. They have a black spot on the lower surface of the hood on either side, and one or two black cross-bars on the belly behind it. The rest of the belly is usually of the same colour as the back, but paler. As age advances, they become paler, and when adult are brownish or olivaceous. Adult monocled cobras reach a length of 135 to 150 cm (53 to 59 in) with a tail length of 23 cm (9.1 in).  Read More here...

    How is free handling a venomous snake(venomoid or not) a good idea? It gives the wrong impression of the correct way to handle such an animal. A more professional manor would be to maintain proper handling techniques before the public even if the animal is venomoid.
