2) Cobras Hood -

Cobra is a venomous snake belonging to the family Elapidae. However, not all snakes commonly referred to as cobras are of the same genus, or even of the same family. The name is short for cobra de capelo or cobra-de-capelo, which is Portuguese for “snake with hood”, or “hood-snake”.When disturbed, most of these snakes can rear up and spread their neck (or hood) in a characteristic threat display.

12) Western Brown Snake -

The Western Brown snake, or Gwarder, is a very fast, highly venomous snake native to Australia. Its colour and pattern is rather variable, depending largely on its location. It is most closely related to the Spotted Brown Snake, Speckled Brown Snake, Peninsula Brown Snake, Ingram’s Brown Snake, Ringed Brown Snake and Eastern Brown Snake. Some experts assert that the Western Brown’s wide variation in appearance and extensive distribution mean that Western Brown species in fact covers multiple related, but separate species.
