We have been conducting field research on King Cobras in India, Thailand, and Indonesian Borneo (Kalimantan) since 2008. To date, we have tracked 25-30 individuals using radio-telemetry. We will present our findings of this species, including spatial ecology, habitat use, diet, and reproduction. Also, to conserve these iconic snakes, we will discuss concerted outreach and education targeting school-aged children, local communities, and the general public.
