Spitting cobras can squirt the venom through holes in their fangs. This happens when muscles squeeze the venom glands. They are slender snakes that can flatten their necks into hoods and raise off the ground when threatened. Venom can cause blindness when it comes in contact with the eye but is not harmful to the human skin.]
