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:

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
