Cobra strike speed compared to a rattler is like a Corolla racing a Z06.Mongoose is hell on cobras, in a cage match with any rattler, don't bet on the mongoose.
A death adder can go from a strike position, to strike and envenoming their prey, and back to strike position again, in less than 0.15 seconds.
Don't know where they rank, but the speed is listed as 175-200 MPH. Rattlesnakes strike up to 28 G's. Pilots are out by 15, IIRC. Wish I could find comparable stats.I always thought it was the Gaboon Viper. And this is why I’m not a herpatologist.
