A Spitting Cobra's Nightmare!

Spitting cobras have a unique adaptation. Whenever the snake is cornered by a predator such as a mongoose, a bird of prey, or any inquisitive large animal, it 'spits' venom from its fangs straight into the eyes of the predator with pin-point accuracy! The venom causes a burning sensation and even temporary blindness and forces the predator to retreat.
