Wordless Wednesdays: Snake in our Garden

Our security guard caught the snake before it could hurt anyone.

This is a type of flying snake that is mildly venomous according to National Geographic. They don’t hurt people, but they can definitely be harmful to pets and maybe small children.

A couple of weeks before this incident, we found a baby cobra in our backyard. I hate to kill animals but with Snubnose and Piglet around, I am taking no chances, and so we’re pretty ruthless with the snakes we do find 🙁 .

  • I don’t blame you on the snake removal. I love animals too but harmful ones have to go. A pair of skunks set up housekeeping under my garage a few years ago and when I called a trapper to remove them he said most skunks are rabid and should be destroyed… eeek!

  • Oh no! I have a had a snake in my house once and it was scary! You were very brave.

    • @samstillreading: On both occasions, I wasn’t present. These photos were taken by my husband. I am scared stiff about snakes.

  • Oh my! I’m not afraid of snakes but I do have a healthy respect for the venomous kind. I’m pretty glad we only have the non-venomous sort in my area!

    • @Stefanie: Even non-venomous snakes can hurt sometimes if you stumble across them unawares. I know a girl who fell from a tree after getting startled by a snake and broke her leg.

    Cobra?! Eek!

    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday!

  • I do live in the countryside. One time, a snake jumped (or fell) from a banana leaf (close to our fence) into our yard. Good thing our strong male neighbor was there to handle the scene. Let’s be careful.

    • @Kitkit: That sounds so scary. I actually didn’t see this snake. My husband took these shots. If I had seen it, I would have been much too flustered/nervous/panicky to take photos of it 🙂
