naoèarka
Explanation:
Indijska naoèarka (Naja kaouthia)
http://www.geocities.com/novo82003/ven22-plazilci/slika222.h...
I see immediately that it is distinct from the two known cobra species in Myanmar-the monocled cobra (Naja kaouthia) and the king cobra (Ophiophagus hannah). The monocled cobra has a circle-shaped mark-the "monocle"-on the back of its neck, clearly visible when the animal spreads its hood in response to a perceived threat.

Ova naoèarka na svojoj kapuljaèi ima šaru u obliku kruga (monokl), a ne u obliku naoèara, ali mislim da nemamo posebne nazive za ove dve vrste. Možda možete u zagradu staviti latinski naziv, ako su tip i svrha teksta takvi da to dopuštaju.
