  1. ringhals

    A ringhals, also known as a ring-necked spook slang or rinkhals, is a species of venomous elapid snake native to parts of southern Africa. It is known for its distinctive character of spraying its venom when threatened. This snake is unique among African elapids for its ability to rear up and produce a hood, similar to a cobra, but while cobras spread only their neck ribs, ringhals expand the ribs in their neck and anterior body, giving them a more robust hood.
