Whoa! Sssnake… :o

Ok, me sick sitting hunched over my computer, half asleep at the keyboard, mindlessly watching YouTube shit, when suddenly … Høøt! HÖÖt! HØØt! Oubaas’s car alarm goes off. As usual when it’s a bit windy outside and I leave the sunroofs open. Alarm is obviously a bit oversensitized to sudden changes in air pressure inside the cabin. So I grab my car keys and slowly schlepp my ailing carcass to the parking lot. And what do I see there?

Sssnake looking stupid now, huh? Situation under control. 🙂

Pheeew, lucky us. No reason to write our wills just yet since it turned out this snake wasn’t a feared Cape Cobra but a so-called Mall Snake. Aggro and fast and nasty and bitey … but not poisonous. 🙂 But, oy vey, that was exciting. And of course the battery in the Canon died so I had to take the photos with the old Nikon. 😮

    • Mhm. The snakelady said the same: The Cape Cobra develops this “collar” thing before she bites, this one baby mall snake may look similar but her neck doesn’t change shape.
