Charming Snakes- Cobras in the Dark
Cobras are one of the most poisonous snakes in the world. Their most
distinctive feature is their hooded head which they raise to intimidate
prey as it spreading their hood makes them look larger.
Cobras usually eat rodents, eggs, and frogs; but they also eat other
snakes such as rat snakes. Their venom is a neurotoxin and when injected
into prey, it paralyses the animal by shutting down the function of the
nervous system, which ultimately leads to cardiac

Once again, the dangers of Dante’s poetic vocation are dramatized
