About Naja Haje Snake:
The Egyptian cobra (Naja haje), also known as Ouraeus (derived from the Ancient Greek word: οὐραῖος), is one of the most venomous snakes in North Africa, which has caused many snakebite incidents to humans. It averages roughly 1.4 metres (4.6 ft), with the longest recorded specimen measuring 2.59 metres (8.5 ft).
Etymology and taxonomy:
Naja haje was first described by Swedish zoologist Carl Linnaeus in 1758. The generic name naja is a Latinisation of the Sanskrit word nāgá (नाग) meaning “cobra“. The specific epithet haje is derived from the Arabic word ḥayya (حية) which literally means “snake”.
The snouted cobra (Naja annulifera) and Anchieta’s cobra (Naja anchietae) were formerly regarded as subspecies of Naja haje, but have since been shown to be distinct species.
The Arabian populations were long recognised as a separate subspecies, Naja haje arabica, and the black populations from Morocco sometimes as Naja haje legionis.
The Egyptian cobra is a large species. The head is large and depressed and slightly distinct from the neck. The neck of this species has long cervical ribs capable of expanding to form a hood, like all other cobras.
The snout of the Egyptian cobra is moderately broad and rounded.
The eye is quite big with a round pupil. The body of the Egyptian cobra is cylindrical and stout, with a long tail.
The length of the Egyptian cobra is largely dependent on subspecies, geographical locale, and population.
The most recognizable characteristics of this species are its head and hood.
Naja haje has the following scalation. The dorsal scales at midbody number 19-20. The ventral scales number 191-220. The anal plate is single.
The subcaudal scales are paired and number 53-65. There is 1 preocular, 3 (or 2) postoculars, and 2 or 3 suboculars. The upper labials number 7 (rarely 6 or 8), and are separated from the eye by the suboculars.
The lower labials number 8. The temporal scales are arranged 1+2 or 1+3, varying.
The Egyptian cobra ranges across most of North Africa north of the Sahara, across the savannas of West Africa to the south of the Sahara, south to the Congo Basin and east to Kenya and Tanzania.
Older literature records from Southern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula refer to other species (see taxonomy section).
The Egyptian cobra can also be found in captivity at zoos, both in and outside the snake’s natural range.
The Giza Zoo, San Diego Zoo, and the Virginia Aquarium include the Egyptian cobra in their reptile collections
