Humans are the most dangerous living things on earth. Maybe the coronavirus is fair to be dealing with humans. Abi no be so?

Many of you don't understand that these animals are living things too. You think the planet belongs to only you people.

Try and kill all those animals, and see how you survive after that.

You should have leave it instead of killing it. nothing like animal preservation here, snake are dangerous and should not even exist in the first place. now you understand why people don't spare snakes

You are saying snakes are dangerous and shouldn't have existed?

Snakes help to keep the population of rats in check. Without snakes, rats will fill up your homes. They will give you many viruses, and humans would have certainly gone into extinction. Imagine dealing with three pandemics at the same time.

Every living thing has its place and benefits in the ecosystem. Some help us get rid of pests, some help with pollination, and all provide what is called ecosystem services.

And if you say snakes are dangerous, what will you say about human beings?

No animal has suffered from another species as much as they have suffered from human beings. Chickens, goats, snakes, lions, tigers, elephants, and so many animals that man has hunted into extinction. There was a period when lions and tigers were hunted for their skin, even almost into extinction. Whales have also suffered same fate, almost hunted into extinction.

Have you seen where they make snakeskin products before. Those snakes are skinned alive by human beings. Imagine there is a creature more powerful than humans. How would you feel if they skinned you alive?

Very very dangerous snake. You can't last 10mins after his bite. Hausa call it Gobe-denisa, meaning Tommorow is too far. My brother, you are lucky.

In actual sense, we(humans) are the ones who live and chase animals outta their natural habitat.


To some extent yes bt there’s still a lot of space for them. Humans territory expands more, we are created to subdue the earth.

Nigeria is not a zoo where the strongest animals prey on the weaker ones.
Think about this, an innocent you finds yourself alone with a lion in the forest, shebi the lion will greet you and welcome you? I think you already know what the lion would do. Now Ask yourself, Why would some Nigerians act/think like wild animals?

Who knows anything about this kind of snake?
I encountered this snake at UNIBEN botanical garden this morning.

Being an animal right activist I never intended to kill it, but the way it displayed make me resort to chase it down and kill it for the safety of people who usually comes to chill in that garden.

This snake moves with a straight body, this means it doesn't wriggle while it moves.

It a surprisingly loud hissing sound.

It can inflate its whole body to about 3 times the normal size.

Not too fast but you'll need to run to catch up with it.

The body is flat that you might mistake it to be some dried long leaf if you don't look well.

It's good with camouflage as it was staying just 2 feet away from me but it took me several seconds of looking at it before I realize it was a snake.



Also tell your fellow students that patronize love gutter to stay away from it most esp at night in front of hall 2 ( girls hostel ) and by the path way where there is an Almond tree beside hall 3 ( boys hostel ) I killed snakes there during my time in UNIBEN

Why did you kill that snake Mr. Animal rights activist? Did it attack you? Doesn't it have the right to life again?
u must be very heartless!so wuld av loved it if the snake got him killed!!
Re: The Puff Adder I Encountered At UNIBEN Botanical Garden This Morning (Photos) by Tickles001(m): 12:22pm On Mar 26
All of you are asking why I did kill the snake. The reason is to protect other people that visit the garden. This snake has advanced camouflage capability. It lay within three feet away, but it took me time to spot it.
So how am I sure the next person will be that lucky to see and avoid it. Even if I chase it away it might still return and bite an unlucky person.
I wouldn't have killed it if it behaved like most snakes I've encountered, but this one proved to be something different by the loud hissing and body inflation.

For those who said I should go home because they close uniben. Are you forgetting there are UBTH dentistry quarters, JSQ, and SSQ? Are you forgetting that non-students live in those places with their families? Or you want us to leave our homes and business that has nothing to do with the school simply because they sent students home?

I'm a freelancer that happens to live around the campus. I usually go there alone to take a break in the arms of nature, when my brain is overheated.

As a snake activist that you're

You were not suppose to kill the snake, you should have picked it up, construct a cage for it and keep it in ur room. By doing that it won't harm anybody.



Why kill the innocent snake

You killed it because it might bite somebody?!? Only in Nigeria do we have your type of 'animal activist'. So why not hunt down amd kill all the snakes in the botanical garden so that they will not bite somebody? If there was a real risk of it biting people, the proper thing to do was to call the wardens and capture it for relocation.
