The king cobra is so big that it is about as long as a pickup truck. As if that weren’t scary enough, it can also produce enough poison to kill 20 elephants! Steer clear of this slithering serpent. When it’s threatened, it growls like a dog and can lift the front one-third of its body off the ground. That’s tall enough to stare a six-foot-tall (1.8-m) person right in the eye! In King Cobra: The World’s Longest Venomous Snake, eye-popping color photos paired with simple, grade-appropriate text will engage children as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this supersized animal. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.
