The Egyptian cobra (Naja haje) is a species in the genus Naja found in Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. It is one of the largest Naja species in Africa. The venom of the Egyptian cobra is mainly neurotoxic, the average venom quantity typically reaches 175 to 200 mg in a single bite. Its venom affects the nervous system, stopping the nerve signals from being transmitted to the muscles and at later stages stopping those transmitted to the heart and lungs as well, causing death due to complete respiratory failure.
