In a dramatic showdown between a cobra and an eagle, the cobra managed to escape the bird of prey’s clutches by spitting venom in its face at the last moment.
The incident occurred in a forested area in Southeast Asia, where the eagle had been hunting for prey.
The cobra, sensing danger, had retreated to the safety of a nearby tree. However, the eagle spotted the snake and swooped in for the kill.
Just as the eagle was about to grab the cobra in its talons, the snake spat venom into the eagle’s face, blinding it and causing it to recoil in pain. The cobra took advantage of the momentary distraction to slither away to safety.
This behavior is not uncommon in cobras, which are known for their deadly venom and ability to spit it from their fangs. Typically, they use this tactic to defend themselves from predators or to hunt prey from a distance.
While the eagle may have lost this battle, it serves as a reminder of the incredible adaptability and survival skills of animals in the wild.
