Our first baby spitting cobra has hatched! This is the first time the Cincinnati Zoo has hatched Indochinese spitting cobra eggs. The babies are being cared for behind the scenes at this time. We will keep you posted when visitors will be able to see them in the Reptile House. Like a water pistol, a spitting cobra defends itself by shooting venom at an enemy’s eyes through a small hole in its bottom fangs. Venom in the eye inflicts stinging, burning pain and can cause blindness. Spitting venom is only for self-defense; to kill prey, a cobra must inject venom through a bite.
