What eats a king cobra snake?


The mongoose is the natural predator of the king cobra snake, states the Encyclopædia Britannica. A small, carnivorous mammal native to Africa but also present in southern Asia and southern Europe, the mongoose is noted for its audacity and quickness when attacking venomous snakes.

The mongoose also feeds on small mammals, birds and eggs. Its diet occasionally extends to fruits. Featuring short legs, diminutive ears and long, bushy tails, the mongoose belongs to the suborder Feliformia, which includes other cat-like animals such as the civet and the hyena. Mongooses live in burrows and are mostly active during the day, although some species are capable in water.
