    How d o you know who will win? Test it. My money’s on the frog!

  2. Horuos

    Poison darts have enough nerotoxin to kill a cobra, however a cobra will probably kill it. Ultimately, I would say both would die, one of being killed, another of venom. It would be a tie.

    How do you know if the cobra has resistance to the frog venom?
    Do cobras take venom warning coloured amphibians in Africa/Asia?

    It seems even pet cats can & do hunt venomous snakes ( & such snakes of any continent)
    though, having a natural venom resistance, as inherited from their wild forebears..

    Domestic dogs are much more vulnerable to snake venom..

    Hello? King cobra can kill black mamba no problem. A poison dart frog isn’t going to be a problem for the almighty king cobra.

  5. Tony/Aka

    Actually, it would be a problem for the cobra to kill the mamba. Cobra would probably win but mamba could win.

  6. James W.

    & yet the smaller species of wildcats can best these snakes,
    by beating their best strike speed.. & by being venom resistant..

    1. AKa/Tony

      Domestic cats are not resistant to snake venom. No domestic cat could take on the big boys, king cobra anaconda, much less not a see snake.

    The cobra could easily kill the frog. The problem would be if the cobra tried to eat it. Cobras have no resistence to the frogs neurotoxins. They live on different continents and have never been exposed to it. If the cobra ate the frog it would also die.

  8. John Castro

    well dart frogs can kill with one touch so the frog can touch the cobra right before the cobra can bite it.
