what does these snakes taste like? Is it that people actually like them or it´s poverty induced situation?

Look at the pattern on the skin, the geometry too. Such a beautiful snake. God is wonderful.

..Una self! Why u proudly showing us that u cooked it. Its no longer funny. Annoying tbh
Annoying to you, fun to me. As long as the world is snakes will still eaten. Nothing special about eating snakes, it's like any other meat, that you don't eat it doesn't mean others shouldn't.

They are very poisonous and should not be found near human residence. Unfortunately, we dont have Snake conservation schemes, so the best bet is to catch and kill.
Snakes are known to avoid humans, unless approached or provoked

I thought Gaboon vipers hardly bite and isn't deadly?

You're obviously mistaken a deadly stinger with a python.

Do snakes always place caveat on their territories so humans dont approach? E.g "beware, snake on site."

All I'm saying is it's best we avoid them, in other countries when a snake or one that is potentially dangerous is spotted, a snake catcher is called to relocate the snake to wildlife or a remote area, there's a programme dedicated to this on natgeo wild, we dont have to necessarily kill anything we see, dangerous or not, people kill these creatures on a daily basis, soon there would be no more snakes for our descendants to see, there are lots of animals humans have sent into extinction, now we only see them in books or drawings, it's sad.

What I am trying to make you understand is that it is almost impossible to avoid them sometimes. A snake has no place in a residential land. Are you not aware that snakes have a way of blending in with their environment, letting unsuspecting humans perch around and possibly get hurt? A snake in a residential environment is a potential threat, if not to you, to that small kid with an underdeveloped sense of judgement or that old man/woman with bad vision or that man/ woman with good vision, but who always comes back home drunk... Even the Bible is in support of these killings. If you see a snake and you dont kill it (if you have the skills to) or raise an alarm, then you should be held responsible for any harm that that same snake would mete on any human.

Okay, I thought you had them as pets, judging by how you were defending their rights to life and freedom of movement.

I just hate seeing life forms being destroyed on an unprecedented rate by humans, when we can't create one, I watch documentaries and see descriptions and of animals that I would have loved to see but humans have driven them into extinction, and it's still happening now, so that's why.
