Huge spitting cobras are identical to huge vipers except that they can spit their poison in a line up to 25' long. Opponents must make a Reflex save (DC 13) to avoid the venom or be blinded for 2-12 hours. Opponents who are blinded must make a Fortitude save (same DC) or take initial and secondary damage of 1d6 points of temporary Constitution damage.
A spitting cobra may spit and bite in the same round, or it may spit twice in one round. Once it has used both its spitting attacks, it must wait 1d4 rounds before it can spit again.
Improved Initiative: +4 on Initiative checks
