The Andaman cobra (Naja sagittifera) is a species of cobra endemic to the Andaman Islands of India. They are fairly widespread in the Andaman Islands.[citation needed] The name of this cobra comes from the Islands itself. It is perhaps the Naja to have the smallest known geographic range of any asiatic cobras.[citation needed] It is venemous.[1]
