Behaviour/habitat: King Cobras like living in light woods and in open grass lands. However, they can also be found on agricultural land and even in the middle of Bangkok. They often live near water. They can swim and climb well. They can also move forwards very quickly with an upright body. They are active at night and during the day. The young King Cobras have contrasting black and yellow stripes. In literature, the King Cobra was always reported to be extremely aggressive. New literature and studies show that the animal is actually shy, does not enjoy attacking and quickly flees.
