From the head, it's not venomous. It's definitely a specie of rat snake (not rattle snake, I said rat snake). As the name suggests, rat snakes feed on mice and insects.
You people need to stop spreading this wrong information that only Triangular shaped headed snakes are venomous.
That's a Boomslang, highly venomous, unlike other snakes if one gets bitten by a Boomslang, you'll not only have internal bleeding, but the victim would be bleeding from the eyes, nostrils and ears before it can get finally fatal.
You guys need to stop thing round headed snakes ain't dangerous

Who knows the name of this snake? I killed it in my house this morning. It is very small...like the size of a long earthworm...I would say just about 10 inches long.

I stay in a 4 bedroom bungalow, and I left the living room empty, as I only use two out of the rooms in the house (I stay alone). So, this morning, I went out to buy something and as I walked in through the kitchen door and into the living room, I saw the thing staying still in the living room. (From the way it was positioned, I could tell it came in from the guest toilet). At first I thought it was dead, cos I keep a bottle with Sniper by the guest toilet. I thought maybe the thing affected it or so, and it died. I stood still myself and watched it. Next thing, I saw the head move slightly. I didn't want to leave its sight, so I grabbed a broom nearby and threw it at it. It hit it and it started struggling to move on the tiled floor and get towards the toilet...but it couldn't move well on the tile. I ran towards it and stamped it out a few times with my leg. It kept moving around. I picked up the broom and hit it on the head a couple of times till it stopped moving.

I won't lie, even though the snake was tiny I was a bit scared. After killing it, I cleaned my whole house within minutes. Lol. Thank God I don't have much in the house, so there is really no hiding place. After clearing every corner, I poured sniper in every corner and went out. I just came back, hoping to meet a dead snake or something, but I guess that snake was the only one that came in.

Is there Bush next to your compound or deserted house

This is an Adult female Boomslang. It hardly attack human, only hangout to feed on rodents, lizard, and birds. But the vernom is highly toxic to human when bitten, and can kill victims within an hour after deadly symptoms.

You killed it and cleaned your rooms immediately with sniper


So where did those insects feeding on that unfortunate snake carcass came from? I don't mean that you are dirty oohh, but I am sure that something in your compound that should not be there attracted the snake to your rooms.

His environment might not be dirty, That snake is a Boomslang, they're tree snakes, tiny enough to camouflage as a branch or twig.
It might've scaled through Op's window from a tree nearby.
No be every time dirty dey draw snakes, with those ants feeding on that Snake, I'm certain there's a tree in his compound

No bush. But there is a deserted house two houses from me that has just recently been cleared of grass/weed. I guess that's where it came from. They destroyed its habitat. Thanks for this comment.

A snake that you killed this morning has already decomposed to this extent. Just within 24hours.

You guys will be stealing dead snake pictures online to post on Nairaland so you can make front page.


Very disgusting and creepy pictures.

look closely,those things aren't flies to show that it has decomposed.
they are ants,(sugar ant) and it seems unusual.

This one too small for Lala na. I doubt it can make FP.

Anyway that’s obviously a non-venomous grass snake. It’s no threat at all. You could have kept it as a pet or let it go on it’s own. Not everything must be killed.

This snake, my friend, is 100% a brown boomslang. A bite from that will result to bleeding from all orifices and a subsequent heavy internal bleeding if you don't seek a medical treatment on time. Its slow acting venom can buy you enough time to get help because unlike other venomous snake like mamba which can kill within 30 minutes to an hour. This one will only take your life within 2-4 days.
thanks for this, God save the op

lol! I guess the camera angle made it look longer. Actually, I am 7 inches down there...that's how I was able to estimate how long the snake is from looking at it. It appeared just a few inches longer than my stuff.

Yeah Mr professor. I never knew boomslangs came in that kind of colour. I also never had an idea their eyes were like that.

Bro, I have better things to do with my time/life than make up stories. After killing the snake, I took it outside, and I went straight to clean my house. I came back about an hour later to find ants all over it. That's when I took the pictures.

you saw the innocent snake in your house and you killed it, why? the heart of a man is cruel and full of wickedness, a homeless snake for that matter.
you threw a broom at it, as if that wasn't enough, you stamped it severally and squeezed life out of a fellow creature!

healed the world! make it a better place for me and for you bro.
how do you want the snake relations to feel now? like his cousins , uncles and parent?
huh!

lol! They didn't waste time at all. In fact, they were more than that. I had to slam cutlass on them a few times, till some dispersed and I was able to take a clearer picture of the snake.

Using leg to kill it is a risk.

I know...but that was the best I could do at the time. There was nothing in sight (apart from the broom I already threw at it), and I didn't want it to get out of sight while I go to look for what to use on it...that would have ben worse, don't you think?

OP if you can't distinguish between a specie of snake from the other, DO NOT attempt to stamp on a snake again. You are very lucky this time around and if you try it again, especially if its a mamba on a sunny day when the snake is charged up. It might just be the last thing you do on earth.

Okay. Thanks for this info. I pray never to encounter it again.

OP you're very very lucky, thank your God...
You stamped on a boomslang with your feet?
you saw it as a small snake and harmless abi?

That's a Boomslang, they're called Tree snakes also because their hiding places are on trees, they're tiny so the can easily camouflage with branches and twigs without being spotted.
Boomslangs are among Africa's highest venomous snake, so next time please don't be stupid enough to think you can attack any snake with your feet.
You got lucky this time. Thank your God once again.
The stuffs I've seen on Nat Geo Wild bout this snake ain't something you'd want to go through.
Peace

But are you sure it is a Boomslang? It is brown, and has some darker patches of brown in different parts of its body.
