How long will you live if you get bit by a kobra?

    That depends on the size and strength of the person who is bitten, and whether or not that person seeks immediate help. However, even with adequate medical treatment, a significant number of people recover from cobra bites without treatment. Cobra venom contains a complex mix of toxins, most of which affect the nervous system of other animals, stopping the heartbeat and breathing. The compounds can also block communication between nerves and muscles, and some mainly affect the heart, causing irregular heartbeats and drops in blood pressure. Other toxins may cause tissue damage and pain. A venomous life-threatening bite may not initially produce symptoms and observation of a bite victim is recommended for 24 hours. Cobras can also spray their venom, deliberately aiming for the eyes of the victim. If contact is made with human eyes, blindness may result.
