Don't Touch IT! It is moulting (see milky white eyes). So, it is blind right now and will be aggressive if disturbed too much. Believe it or not, the bacteria they harbour in their mouths is really dangerous and a bite would not only hurt but would be pretty nasty too.

All snakes can get pretty nasty when they want to, and moult season is not a happy time for them. At least it isn't the variety they have round here at the moment - the "Egyptian" Cobra, long, yellow and with a spectacular hood - and a permanent down on the rest of creation.

Man's Job!!!

Last night as my brother in law was leaving from having had family dinner at our home, a bug flew in from the porch into my foyer. He said, "Bou, there is a bug there on the base boards" and I said, "Umm. that's YOUR job. You're the man". He rolled his eyes and killed it.

Snakes... man's job. Bugs. Man's job. Opening jars? Man's job. Also keeping the gas in the gas grill full (he grills) and jump starting cars. Everything and anything else... I'm game.
