Cobolta is a large cobra, hence part of its name. Its body is mainly yellow, with large electric blue lightning bolt-shaped tails. It has an intimidating look in its eyes, which have electric blue irises and black pupils, while the outer parts of its eyes are white. It has 5 large white spots along its body, all of them having an electric blue outer ring, with an additional sixth one on its forehead. It has a hood-like protrusion on its neck that is white and electric blue.
When Cobolta chases underground prey, it uses slits within its neck flaps to blow air and to knock away dirt and dust that may manipulate its electricity, which it uses to change the patterns on its body. This is mostly for intimidation, but they also use it during mating seasons. It uses both x-ray and heat vision to seek its prey, and uses radiation to temporary incapacitate its prey's skeletal and muscular conditions, thus slowing it down, before delivering its paralyzing bite.
Unlike Snazap, Cobolta are much more aggressive. They signal foes to back away by rattling their tails to send electric volts around themselves and hissing. They use the electricity mostly for intimidation, though they also use it during mating seasons.
Cobolta live in tall grass. Wild Cobolta are found in the Tropic Cave.
