First Aid: Snake Bite – Philippine Cobra

Since F.R.A.G operates in the forested area of Malasag, we should be aware of all the natural dangers that surround us. It might be the wild animals, insects or plants. One particular danger we pose to encounter is the highly toxic Philippine Cobra. (see picture below)

According to sources, The Philippine Cobra (Naja philippinensis) is a stocky, very toxic snake native to the Philippines. They are found on the Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao islands. Its average length is 1,70 cm. Populations in other areas are known to be up to 2 Meter in length. Its color is light to medium brown while the young cobra’s color is a darker brown. They have twenty three to twenty scale rows around the neck and twenty one just above the middle part of the body. They prey upon mice, frogs and small mammals. The female lays eggs in clutches of ten to twenty with an incubation time of sixty to seventy days.


The venom is a neurotoxin which affects cardiac and respiratory function and can cause neurotoxicity and respiratory paralysis and death in thirty minutes. The bite causes only minimal tissue damage. The Philippine cobra is capable of spitting their venom up to three meters.

Kart M14 EBR (Enhanced Battle Rifle)

gp-ebr-m14kit.jpgThe M14 EBR/M1A EBR was developed to win a five-year Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (Crane NSWC) contract to supply the U.S. Naval Special Warfare (SPECWAR) and Marine Corps communities (perhaps MCSOCOM and Force Recon units) with a SPECOPS-ready SOPMOD accessory-compatible M14 rifle/carbine. The M14 Enhanced Battle Rifle (or M1A Enhanced Battle Rifle) should prove particularly effective in the CQB (Close Quarters Battle) and short-to-medium range interdiction (sniping) roles in urban warfare/combat environments.pic0003cj7.jpgKart M14 EBR
