I know. huh? You can see the hood beginning to flatten as the snake is feeling threatened a bit. I can understand as I was kinda cornering it to try to get a quick pic. Needless to say I moved to different set of boulders to let the cobra have the rocks it wanted.

One note of caution . . . there are King Cobras about. They act like rattlesnakes in that they typically are defensive, avoid confrontation . . . but just a bit more curious. I saw two wild cobras around Hampi, one of which was about 10 feet long and slithered right up to my feet from a garbage pile adjacent to jungle in Hospet. It flared up right in front of me, then turned and slithered back into the jungle. Don't get bit.
