    I hate snakes--my son beg me to open the email with the snake pics--i use to see snakes when i go hiking at the nature center and some were so close we both would stop and stared at each other--usually the snake would run away.
    SumitBahl, my insides are turning.:eek: :eek:

    We don't have a lot of cobras running on street, so Indians are scared of snakes. And, not everybody here is Snake Charmer :D :p (contrary to popular belief i guess).

    We've a lot of cobras but they are in suburbs, forests and not many people live there now. :)

    We do have a lot of stray cats and dogs though.

    Growing up in the city, and now an then making it to the woods. I would say you have been demoted, from a boy downward.

    Snakes eats fullgrown alligators.

    (If you are a kid less then 6 years old then don't read this)

    This news is comming from my trusted news source, FOX NEWS. Read the whole article here: www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,171358,00.html
    ______________________________________

    MIAMI, Fla. — Alligators have clashed with nonnative pythons before in Everglades National Park. But when a 6-foot gator tangled with a 13-foot python recently, the result wasn't pretty.

    [​IMG]

    The snake apparently tried to swallow the gator whole — and then exploded. Scientists stumbled upon the gory remains last week.

    The species have battled with increasing frequency — scientists have documented four encounters in the last three years. The encroachment of Burmese pythons into the Everglades could threaten an $8 billion restoration project and endanger smaller species, said Frank Mazzotti, a University of Florida wildlife professor.

    The gators have had to share their territory with a python population that has swelled over the past 20 years after owners dropped off pythons they no longer wanted in the Everglades. The Asian snakes have thrived in the wet, hot climate.

    "Encounters like that are almost never seen in the wild. ... And we here are, it's happened for the fourth time," Mazzotti said. In the other cases, the alligator won or the battle was an apparent draw.

    "They were probably evenly matched in size," Mazzotti said of the latest battle. "If the python got a good grip on the alligator before the alligator got a good grip on him, he could win."

    Sam in many european countries the , is used as a decimal point and . used as British/American use a ,
    eg 18.200 = 18,200 (I used to use a German version of excel, it drove me mad)

    As for the snake, poke the bugger in the eye with a stick!

    When I was a kid our house backed on to a creek and we use to have lots of snakes coming into the house (up to several feet long).

    We kept lengths of garden hose around to hit them with to break their bones and make them immobile, then we used a broom handle with a drawstring noose on the end to pick them up with, out into the yard and then kill them with a shovel.

    In Australia a lot of snakes are deadly poisonous no matter how big they are, so it was pretty dangerous as they can move very fast. For six months we got about one every few weeks. But after cutting back plants and trees from touching the house it dropped off to one or two per year.

    It was a shame to have to kill them but given they were poisonous it was too hard to safely catch and release them.

    If you don't want to have problem with snakes, make sure that you get rid of the rats.
