Help Identifying A Snake

I thought King too, but the nostrils are smaller than I thought King's have, though yes, head scales are right. Gotta be a cobra though.

Damn... So much for getting one. LOL. I knew with my luck it was gonna be something venomous. Now I gotta find something else that interests me.

I'm going to have to disagree with the overall "Cobra" consensus here and say that I'm 90% positive that that's a colubrid of sorts. Perhaps an eastern rat snake sp.? It'll be almost impossible to get a definitive ID off of that picture though.

But it's pretty obvious it's not a Naja sp., on hooded cobras you can see the small loose scales on the underneath sides of the neck that they use to "hood up." This snake obviously doesn't have that. Also, the snake appears to be in a defensive posture, I've never seen a Naja sp. or king for that matter, adopt a defensive posture like that. And if that's a king cobra, it's the oddest colored one I've ever seen.

It could possibly be some sort of Australian elapid, but I doubt it, I'm still betting on "colubrid."

It might be helpful to tell us what website you saw the snake on. Obviously if it was a site about the rainforests of Thailand, that'd be a huge tip.
