Cape cobra in the klein Karoo

 The Cape Cobra is a slender, nervous cobra with a broad head and smooth dull scales The Cape Cobra's colours vary according to the region it lives. In the Klein Karoo they are yellow to a copper brown colour as they get older.  The Cape Cobra is a diurnal hunter, hunting small vertebrates that include frogs,birds,mice and other snakes.  The venom is highly toxic.  The Cape Cobra spreads its hood  when threatened and readies itself to strike. They lay 8-20 eggs underground in its "nest". Rather stand still when coming across this snake, it will move on when it no longer feels threatened.
