They are not more sensivite as other cobras. It´s easy to keep them BUT they are VERY aggressive and very fast.


What is it about Philippine cobras? I keep both philippinensis and samarensis, and both are the quickest and most aggresive cobras in my collection. Marry that with the reputation of being drop for drop the most venomous species in the genus (I am assuming samarensis is closely related and therefore similar), they are not to be taken lightly.

And a feeding response that makes kaouthia look like lap dogs :-)

Dendroaspis viridis = Gorgeous! I want one!
Nice photos!
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.
