King Cobra Ecology

The king cobra project is investigating the spatial and thermal ecology of king cobras in the Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve. It began in 2014, and ever since SCSET have been radio-tracking king cobras. Details on the currently tracked king cobras can be found here.

Throughout this time we have been documenting their movements and habitat use. Intial finding are available here: https://doi.org/10.1163/15685381-18000008. We have also documented some of the threats facing king cobras, such as plastic pollution: https://www.researchgate.net/publication. We are currently investigating the survival rates of tracked king cobras and the wider patterns of mortality.

More details coming soon…
