Longest Venomous Snake [ANIMAL]

The King cobra (Ophiophagus hannah), also called the hamadryad, has an average length of 12-15 ft. An 18-ft.-2-in.-long specimen captured near Fort Dickson, Negri Sembilan (now Malaysia), in April 1937, later grew to 18 ft. 9 in. in London Zoo, England.

If you get bit by a King cobra you have about 15 minutes to live, luckily though, King cobras are shy and prefer to avoid people when possible.
