The Red Spitting Cobra (Naja pallida), is a species of spitting cobra native to Africa. This species was formerly considered to be a subspecies, Naja mossambica pallida, of Naja mossambica, but is now categorized as a separate species. This species is one of the seven spitting cobra in Africa. Spitting cobras do not spit their venom. Instead, they spray their venom to their enemies as, if the venom gets into the eyes, it can cause intense pain and temporary or even permanent blindness.

Description

This is a relatively a small-sized cobra, with maximum length of 120 cm (4 ft) and smaller sized specimen of about 60 cm (2 ft) to 75 cm (2 ft 6 in). Body color of this species has great variation from red, deep orange, pale red, pinkish and light brown. It should be noted that Red Spitting Cobras found in Northern Africa have duller color while others are much brighter. There is a black band on the underside of the neck. Like most other spitting cobra, the hood of the Red Spitting Cobra is narrow compared with the Indian Cobra and the Cape Cobra. It also has a small round head and a pair of rather large eyes.
