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.

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.
I hope these snakes are not your ancestors who only came to check on you. undecided

Did it occur to you that these snakes probably have kids at home? And they only came out to look for food for them?

hmnnn mm quite educative ..but its difficult to determine that if one do not know..for me all snakes must be called oh ..but for someone who knows the harmless and non harmless.. its okay then


the spitting cobra? I have seen a documentary on it ...its a highly venomous snake and can cause death within 30 minutes I think. it also like targeting the human eyes ...has a very good accuracy sort of.

Nice 1 bro! only person to identify the black snake. Massive Black Cobra,though the head is cut off, I still can identify it anyday anytime. Though that Cobra might not have spitting capability. Majority of the Spitting cobras are found in Mozambique

You mean these were found in the same compound? A Python and a cobra shocked? Did they build that house in a jungle clearing? Looking at the picture, I see so much junk in the compound no wonder this kinda thing is happening. Imagine getting bitten by any of these and they're living in this jungle, how will they get medical help on time? Abeg, if una dey train chickens, make una shift their coop go far and make una clear the dirty wey dey una yard.

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.

Thank you sir, though I don't believe that's a spitter, the killing of the ball Python is the one that saddens me the most, these snakes are harmless guys.. And for the brave hustlers out there, you can become a millionaire breeding and exporting them to Yankee, there is a big market for new bloodlines of ball Pythons.. Una no no wetin una dey kill, saddened but hey.. cheesy cool
