In Asia and Africa, black leopards, in Asia, possibly the very rare black tigers and in North America they may be black jaguars or possibly black cougars.

Cobras are some of the most dangerous and venomous snakes found mostly in Africa and Asia. They can range in length from 8 feet to just over 18 feet. According to National Geographic, one bite from a king cobra has enough toxin to kill 20 people or even an elephant. Most cobras, however, are shy and try to stay away from humans.

The Black Forest Cobra: Regarded as highly intelligent, this aggressive snake covers a majority of Africa and is the largest true cobra in the world. Its neurotoxic venom along with its readiness to bite can render its victim dead in a matter of hours (as few as 30-60 in extreme cases). Why I love it: It is a majestic and powerful creature, intelligent and lethal. I love its method of movement as well.
