I little project o been working on since 2015. It took me 2 tries to build ( the first one was destroyed so i needed to start fresh with new paper). I studied a lot of cobra pics and made about more than 20 experimental builds of different parts of the snake, trying different builds and different kinds of paper, to make it as lifelike and strong as possible . Unfortunately i had to use glue for this one , its too massive to hold on its own , conclusion that i made from my first try to build it. 

It has 7625 pieces 1/32 and 95 pieces 1/65. Its 47 cm wide and 60 cm high.

Edit:
WoW i never expected so many comments . When i left the last time i had 20 views and no comments , weeks after it exploded. Thank you all for the kind words !
I have a second picture of the back side of the snake that posted here .

Hey
Thank you
I am sorry unfortunately it is not possible , it took too much time to build and i didn't write any record how i built it (I did at first but i changed it so many times so i just gave up ).
It will take a lot of time, luxury that i don't have at the moment.

i used different technique for the back side (Gray ) and the front side  , Just its not your regular tube . Without going into detail , just use less pieces on one side than the other , and bend it carefully .

That is fucking amazing! This reminds me of a kid back in middle school who made a huge origami crane out of smaller ones. You really went above and beyond! Amazing job!
