King Cobra (Utah)

Adopt Utah

Hi, my name is Utah. I’m one of the most impressive reptiles on the planet, a king cobra! I’m the longest venomous snake species in the world – I have to be seen to be believed. I’m incredibly intelligent and I like to ensure my keepers are on their toes!

I am an impressive reptile and have the capability of delivering a fatal bite to any would-be predators and prey. I’m very misunderstood though, I’m a placid and friendly snake and allow the keepers into my home to feed me my favourite food items.

You can see me in Robert’s Reptile House, spending my days snoozing and observing the world around me. I have amazing eyesight, so there’s a chance I’ve see you before you see me! This is the perfect survival tool out in the wild.

I hope you fall in love with me and my wild counterparts, as they need our support! We king cobras are a vulnerable species.

* Each guest pass is valid for a single day entry only, to be used within 12 months of adoption purchase. For Gold, Platinum and Ultimate adoptions, guest passes can be used for multiple single day entries for one person, or single day entries for up to the specified amount of people. For Gold or Platinum adoptions, if you are unable to use the included guest passes you can opt to swap the guest passes for a plush toy animal.

^ The encounter is subject to availability and must be pre-booked. Restrictions based on age, group size, and specific animals apply. Please note that encounters with some animals are not possible due to health and safety regulations (they include: saltwater crocodiles, tigers, elephants, snakes and iguanas); an alternative animal encounter will be substituted.

Please note: While all of the animals available for adoption are usually on display at the Zoo and/or participate in encounters, adopting an animal does not guarantee the chance of seeing or meeting them if visiting the Zoo. Animal availability is subject to change; there may be times when animals may be temporarily off display due to unforeseen circumstances, such as veterinary check-ups or habitat maintenance. If booking one of our amazing animal encounters to meet your adoptee, please advise staff of the animal you adopt at the time of booking.

Animal adoptions and associated elements are non-refundable, non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.

It is important to note that adopting an animal does not provide a company or organisation license to promote Australia Zoo across their channels. If you desire to include in advertising and/or collateral including your website, further discussions will be required. If interested, please let us know and we can organise a meeting. Thank you again for your support!

*Please allow up to 3 weeks for the delivery of your gift pack, if applicable.
