Cape Cobra hatchlings are up to 40 cm in length and are completely independent from the time they hatch, and when they are young they have one or two dark throat bands which you can see on this little cutie 🥰
I’ve always wandered what is brave enough to predate on these snakes, so I looked it up and read that
Cape cobras are usually eaten by Herpestidae such as mongoose, civet, honey badgers and meerkats. Certain birds of prey species are also known to feed on cobras, such as secretary birds and snake eagles. Nature is wild!
