Viva La Cobra


Of all the poisonous insects like centipedes and scorpions that sometimes appear around the compound of my house, I really didn't expect a baby cobra to suddenly land on that list.

My mum was the one who noticed it because my dog, Happy, had been barking and jumping around the bushes for most of the morning chasing something, and when she went to have a look, she saw the little cobra hissing trying to fight back at Happy.

Once we brought Happy away from the cobra, I went closer and took photos of it. It started to back away and hiss and it somewhat jumped a few times, while mum bravely took a leaf picker [I'm not really sure what it is but it picks things up] and went closer to the fleeing cobra.

My first impression was that she was going to use it as a weapon, but then she caught it and after I got more shots of it, she brought the cobra far from the compound of the house and released it into the wild.

I'm glad your mom released the cobra. Gotta be careful, too! Glad Happy is ok.
