The biggest I can think is….Ophiophagus sp. :lol:

Nope, not an elapid. And there have been no recent descriptions of Ophiophagus spp., although there may well be some in the not too distant future.

However, I am not assuming clairvoyancy on anyone's part, so I have stuck with something that has already been described :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cheers,
