Do the words "cobra" and "snake" have the exactly same meaning?
- NewtonLv 72 months agoFavourite answer
Cobras are a particular kind of snake. They are highly venomous. There are many other kinds of snakes that are not cobras and most snakes are not venomous. There are for example, blind snakes, constrictors, pythons, vipers, garter snakes, water snakes, rat snakes, hognose snakes, and racers. Most snakes belong to the family Colubridae. Cobras belong to the family Elapidae.

Despite what everyone here says, YES! "Cobra" is the Portuguese word for snake. As we use it, it is a shortening for "cobra de capella", or hooded snake. Same meaning, different languages.

"Cobra" has the exact same meaning as "snake" the same way "Golden Retriever" has the exact same meaning as "dog."
Snakes are a suborder called "Serpentes." Cobras are a family (Elapidae), containing several species, such as the King Cobra. There are currently about 3,600 known species of snakes around the world.

Not really. A cobra is a type of snake. Snake covers all all types of snakes.

No. A cobra is one variety of snakes. Many snakes are not cobras.
