“Monocled cobras love drier environments compared to King cobras. A good dry substrate with a mediumsized water bowl and a hide will be the best setup for them.”
The only way to be safe with cobra companions is to just leave them alone. Not completely alone, of course – do remember to feed them and check on them when necessary, but when it comes to handling them, do so only when absolutely necessary.
“I only handle cobras when I need to clean or examine them closely.”
