Just some random interesting photos about snakes....

An epic prinitive clash..

A King Cobra (the world's longest venomous snake) has attempted to catch, kill and eat this Reticulated Python (grows to be the longest snake in the world) and has been coiled and strangled by the python and died in the process.
Both were dead when found.

The King has met its match...

I had no idea a snake would eat a snake. Neat. Thanks for posting.

I have no use for a snake! The top photo comes from my h7nting camp in Arkansas and the bottom near a river in South Africa. The top one died shortly after the picture was taken.

I'm with you Charlie, I have no use for snakes. Living in a colder climate that has almost no poisonous snakes I am overly cautious about where I step while hunting in warmer climates. The mere thought of seeing a dangerous snake sends chills up my spine.

Most snakes are harmless, and the others, well, just don´t try to play with them :ROFLMAO:

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
