A few species of cobras have the unique ability in defence to spit there venom to there attackers. These species are of the genus, Naja and Haemachatus. What we call spitting is not really spitting but rather squirt there venom.
Pressure on the venom glands forces the venom along the venom duct to the hollow fangs, at the tip of the venom fang is a duct in a right angle on the fang, this duct directs the venom out of the cobras mouth.
