day one-hundred-and-ninety-nine - red spitting cobra

or naja pallida (oooooh! sultry)

see. he's red and he's a cobra. but oh no! he is not spitting! it's a good thing i didn't draw that, because when they spit they go from cute and cartoony to pure evil. and this guy looks just a little bit intimidating...

but really they should be called a red spraying cobra. jeez, get your semantics right naturalists.
