Found a few snakes in Hong Kong. I didn't know Chinese Cobras could spit.

Yeah Lou I always enjoy your stuff.

I thought just about any non-giant cobra you saw in Asia "might be a spitter". Like, just assume it is and don't dick around & get an eyeful. Just something I picked up osmotically I guess. Not the most reliable method, but certainly low-effort. Ha ha ha.

cheers

Stereotypicaly African cobras are spitters and Asian Cobras are bitters but there are a few Asian Cobras that spit.I think Bangladesh has a spitting cobra

Naja sumatrana from the Sunda region (Malaysia etc.) certainly spits
