The Egyptian Cobra is native to northern regions of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. They can grow up to 8 inches and prefer to live in abandoned animal dwellings. They are most known for their hood, which expands when they perceive danger. As for food, the cobra hunts small mammals and fellow reptiles, even other snakes. Each bite from an Egyptian cobra delivers the 4th deadliest neurotoxin, in a dosage of 200 mg. The neurotoxin attacks the nervous system and induces complete respiratory failure by cutting off nerve signals. The many possible symptoms of the toxin are pain, swelling, bruising, blistering, necrosis, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, fainting, convulsions and paralysis. Because of this deadly feature, the Egyptian Cobra was used as the symbol of the pharaoh, marking their absolute power.
In search of pieces of the Scroll of Osiris, Ra's al Ghul and Ubu returned to Gotham City. After Batman interrupted the theft, Ra's al Ghul appeared and threw and Egyptian Cobra at Batman. Upon being bitten, Batman quickly administered an anti-toxin. After waking up, Batman realized the cobra, itself, was a clue compulsively left by Ra's al Ghul.
