Do Cobras Climb?

Have just had a phone call telling me not to go downstairs as there is a king cobra on the loose :eek: Its apparently 12ft long and they have closed 3 roads off looking for it :eek:

I know im 15 floors in the air but i think i will be closing all my windows tonight :o

    I'm sure they can slither upstairs!!!! I had a dream about a rattlesnake the other night for some bizzare reason!! Anyway, I would be feeling just a touch nervous if I knew there was a snake on the loose in the area. Got any bicycle clips for your trouser legs???

    Yes it looks like we made it to the end

    :eek: No and im not going out to get any :rotfl: I think i will definatly be staying locked indoors until it is found. Surely it cant survive outside in this weather for long though can it? :confused:

    I'd be more worried if there was a tarantula on the loose :eek: :eek: !!!

    Seriously though, why must people keep these things as pets?? What's wrong with a cat, dog or hamster????

    You sure someone hasn't been telling you stories about trouser snakes?:eek:

    Together we can make a difference.
  • i would be just as worried if it was a tarantula :eek:

    But thats an interesting point though why would you keep such a dangerous animal as a pet :confused:
    I had 2 geckos when i was younger that was different but they were far from dangerous.
    On the other hand how do you not notice a 12ft king cobra escaping? :confused: if it was a tarantula then its more understandable as its a lot smaller but a 12ft snake? :confused:

    I bet you wish you'd saved that recorder from your school days now, don't you? Never mind...........just wrap your hair in a [STRIKE]turbine[/STRIKE] towel, sit crossed legged on the floor and pretend you've got a snake charmer's flute.:D

    By the way........did they say whether it's a spitting cobra? Best to wear goggles too, just in case.:eek:

    Don't have nightmares.:D
