The Monocled Cobra (Naja kaouthia), also called Monocellate cobra, is a venomous cobra species widespread across South and Southeast Asia and listed as Least Concern on the List. The Monocled cobra has an O-shaped, or Monocellate hood pattern, unlike that of the other Spectacle Cobra, which has the "spectacle" pattern (two circular ocelli connected by a curved line) on the rear of its hood. They prefer habitats associated with water, such as paddy fields, swamps, and mangroves, but can also be found in grasslands, shrublands, and forests. The species also occurs in agricultural land and human settlements including cities. They can be found at elevations of up to 1,000 m (3,300 ft.) above sea level. Monocled cobras are terrestrial and most active at dusk.
Coloration of the young is more constant. The dorsal surface may be yellow, brown, gray, or blackish, with or without ragged or clearly defined cross bands. It can be olivaceous or brownish to black above with or without a yellow or orange-colored, O-shaped mark on the hood. It has a black spot on the lower surface of the hood on either side and one or two black cross-bars on the belly behind it. The rest of the belly is usually the same color as the back, but paler. As age advances, the snake becomes paler, wherein the adult is brownish or olivaceous. The elongated nuchal ribs enable a cobra to expand the anterior of the neck into a “hood”. A pair of fixed anterior fangs is present.
