We all know that the king of the jungle is the lion. Because of its strength, majestic gait and roar that shakes the entire forest. Similarly, how much do you know about the snake king? Yes, its name itself says Raja Naga. That means King Cobra. Its scientific name is called ophiophagus hanna. It is the world's largest venomous snake. Its poison is so dangerous that once the poison from its mouth is distributed to 10 people, ten people will lose their lives.
The term harmless snakes usually describes non-venomous snakes that are not very dangerous to people. These snakes are usually not hostile towards humans, and they are not able to bite someone with enough venom to inflict harm. This group includes many snake species, and through managing rodent populations, they contribute significantly to ecosystems. Many types of garter snakes, corn snakes, rat snakes and king snakes are common examples of innocuous snakes. Even though these snakes are not poisonous, handling any snake should be done so carefully and with consideration for the animal. Furthermore, the word harmless does not preclude these snakes from biting if they sense danger or are cornered; nonetheless, the venom in their bites is not particularly dangerous.
