Normally, this cobra species does not bite. They spray their venom more often -- they're very accurate, she said.

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

Sleeping is when most bites occur. The effects of being bitten may last for years, according to research.

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

There was an animal issue at that home in March. 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. His Facebook account shows several pictures of snakes he claims are owned by his son, Christopher, according to the account.

The TikTok account of Christopher Gifford has over 460000 followers. According to brisbane north snake catcher of his posts, he claims to have a 7-foot zebra cobra.
