A neighbor, Joan Nelson, said she is relieved the ordeal is over.

Trying to find a zebra cobra laying on a porch in a north Raleigh neighborhood where one is missing.

A zebra cobra can spit 9 feet long and is faster than most snakes, making morning dog walks extremely hazardous. In the opinion of the African Snakebite Institute, snakes are very dangerous. It is possible for the venom to cause a victim's nervous system to shut down.

A person hit by the poison would experience pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. In the next few hours, a heavy fever would occur, as well as respiratory difficulty.

An experienced veterinarian, Dr. Salina Locke, treats all kinds of pets at the Avian and Exotic Animal Care.

There is no evidence that this species of cobra bites. The venom sprays more readily, since it is so accurate. they aim right for the eyes, she said.

Due to the risks, Locke does not recommend this snake as a pet.

Sleeping is the most common time when people are bitten. Research shows that people who are bit may suffer health issues for years.

In the afternoon of Tuesday, police searched a home near the street where the cobra was last spotted, at 6917 Chamonix Place.

In March, police visited the home four times because of an animal problem. The zebra cobra was spotted on a porch a half mile away on Monday and Tuesday.

At that address, Keith and Rebecca Gifford inhabit the house, according to county records. On a Facebook page associated with Keith Gifford's name, he posts photos of snakes owned by his son, Christopher.

Christopher Gifford has over 460000 followers on his TikTok account. One of his posts claims that he owns a 7-foot zebra cobra.
