One zebra cobra has gone missing from a north Raleigh neighborhood where there is a striped snake on a porch.

The snake, a zebra cobra, is extremely fast and can spit up to nine feet away, making a walk with the dog even scarier. The African Snakebite Institute cites the snake as extremely dangerous. An animal's venom could cause the victim's nervous system to shut down.

An immediate reaction to the poison of a cobra is pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. A severe fever and breathing issues could cause respiratory failure.

The Avian and Exotic Animal Care is run by veterinarian Salina Locke, who treats all types of pets.

Cobras of this kind usually do not bite. The venom from them, she said, is typically sprayed. She said they are extremely accurate and shoot straight for the eyes.

Despite the risks involved, Locke does not recommend keeping this snake as a pet.

During sleep, most bites occur. Bite victims could be plagued with health problems for years, studies show.

Police searched a home on 6917 Chamonix Place on Tuesday, near where the cobra was last seen.

There were four visits by police to that house in March in connection with an animal issue. Following the sighting on Monday and Tuesday of the zebra cobra on a porch about half a mile away, they returned.

The records of the county show Rebecca and Keith Gifford live at the address. An account linked to Keith Gifford's name features several photos of snakes belonging to his son, Christopher.
