"The Cobra's Revenge"

POSTSCRIPT

King cobra, Ophiophagus hannah


Since we filmed "The Cobra's Revenge" and found our two King cobras (Ophiophagus hannah) in the Western Ghats near Agumbe, the internationally acclaimed herpetologist Rom Whitaker and his colleagues have established the Agumbe Rainforest Research Station, the aim being to study and conserve the rainforest habitat and its denizens. Although this project began with king cobra research it has now expanded to other animals in the reserve. The Agumbe Rainforest Research Station encourages people to visit and volunteer from all over the world.
