The Mozambique spitting cobra is a medium length snake, averaging 1.2m – 1.5m, very rarely growing larger 1.6 m.
The colour is light to dark grey. The skin between the scales is black, giving it a fish-net stocking appearance on the dorsal (top) side. The ventral is light orange to with from one to three irregular black bands on the throat. Although it becomes more active at night, it is also often found during the day.
