Snakes Killed By My Dad And I (Black Spitting Cobra & Ball Python) by chygoz3(m): 8:59am On May 29, 2017
We got some local chickens roaming about in our compound.

Yesterday morning, we woke up to find that one of the hens which was incubating some eggs was squatting somewhere else and did not attempt to move when we go near it.

Also, the eggs which were eight in number the previous day had reduced by 3. We concluded that a snake must have attacked the hen and swallowed the eggs.

The eggs were laid in a place which has wood and some bags packed beside. We started removing the items there one after the other and the first snake, the python was sighted.

It was snuffed out using petrol and killed using an iron pipe.

Feeling that the snakes could be more than one, we started searching for another and found it almost immediately. The black one wanted to escape through a place which we had earlier covered using a piece of aluminium roofing sheet. While the snake was just next to a wall, my dad held it to the wall using a longer iron pipe while I hit its head using a shorter iron pipe.

Pictures are attached.

P.S. We don't eat snakes for those that'll ask for pictures of soup/stew cooked with them.


Jakumo:
The black snake with red coloration on the neck are is the highly aggressive spitting cobra, which can spew acid with precise accuracy into the eyes of a person standing up to 10 feet away. I generally shoot those on sight, when our paths cross while I am hunting in the bush.

The brown snake with the beautiful patterns is a totally harmless ball python, of the type that has historically been domesticated in some villages in Igbo-land, where the serpents are regarded as ancestral spirits, and are in fact accorded respectful burials if found dead of natural causes. In a symbiotic exchange of benefits, the domesticated ball pythons of Igboland do a great job of keeping the population of domestic rats down, by eating them on sight.

I have never killed a ball python in all my years of seeing them in the wild, and I never will. This species of python is pefectly safe around human dwellings, and entirely non-aggressive, such that when touched, they will curl up into a tight ball, hiding their head in the middle much like a tortoise, hence the species common name - Ball Python.

May God continue to bless you and your dad for making me happy this morning.




I love seeing those beast being killed in a gruesome way. It gives me great pleasure.



The Snake Activists of Nairaland (S.A.N) will condemn this heroic act, but who cares anyway? grin






There's nothing friendly about that beast, kill a snake before it kills you.

killing these beautiful creatures is a sin u should have allowed them to kill themselves by boiling two of the remaining eggs and drop it on the hen's nest
the snakes will come and swallow the eggs but will eventually die when the eggs refuse to break in their throats.

I just pray God forgive u and your dad.
