(Naja nigricollis) black necked spitting cobra
Venom primarily cytotoxic, causing serious local tissue damage. Large specimens can “spit” venom as far as 3 m, usually aiming at intruders’ eyes (or heads). Venom does not affect unbroken skin, but can cause great pain & possible tissue destruction in the eyes
