Red Spitting Cobra

Naja pallida

The Red Spitting Cobra is an East African species that inhabits dry savanna and semi-desert habitats from Egypt to Northern Kenya. Similar to the Rinkhals, fatalities from Red Spitting Cobras are rare but permanent blindness from a direct hit to the eyes is a real possibility.
