Pseudohaje
provided by wikipedia EN

Pseudohaje is a genus of venomous African elapid snakes, commonly called tree cobras or forest cobras because of their arboreal lifestyle.[1][2] Their ability to produce a hood is limited to a slight flattening of the neck.

Characteristics

Tree cobras have proportionally larger eyes compared to Naja species, smaller fangs, and smaller bone structures.[2] Members were formerly categorized as Naja, but anatomical analysis of midbody scale rows distinguished them as a separate taxon.[2]

Species

Two species are recognized as valid.[3]
