Like monitor lizards, snakes primarily come out during the rain to hunt for food. Unfortunately for frogs who come out in droves during the monsoon season, they not only attract mates but also predators like snakes.
One native species of snake that thrives in heavy rainfall is the Philippine Cobra. They are extremely fond of water and can be found near ponds and rivers as they prefer to dwell in mangrove swamps and rainforests. These predators mostly feed on mice and frogs and sometimes other snakes, small mammals, and small birds.
Due to the hunting and trapping of the Philippine Cobra for the exotic food trade, pet trade, and also for anti-venom production, they have been red-listed by the IUCN as a Threatened Species since 2007.
