King Cobra

King Cobra's "claim to fame" is the fact that they are the only snake to construct a nest for the sole purpose of laying their eggs. A King Cobra Nest is constructed by the female typically from rotten leaves and vegetation. The female King Cobra will loop her coils over loose debris and drag the material to create her nest. In most cases, a Cobra nest is nothing more then a simple pile of leaves mounded above the ground were she will lay between 40 and 60 eggs. In some cases however, maybe due to experience, the female actually constructs a lower “Egg Chamber”, with an upper area for her to lay and incubate. King Cobra eggs incubate after 65 to 80 days.
