    Shall we agree that this exsnake that I just found in my garden is a cobra?

    Dogs appear to be fine though.

    Monocled Cobra. You're dead within an hour if its bite hits a vein.

    It's possible I stood on it to it's demise on my way in last night. We're using the back door while the painters are in and I always go in first with phone torch to light up a safe passage for everyone else.

    Pretty lucky. Now I think about it more, I would have heard the barking if the dogs got it during the night. On the other hand, if they had gotten it before I came home they would have been jumping around to proudly present it to me.

    With my shitty phone torch on I'm only really scanning for dog shite.

    Bloody hell.

    No, that's a specific variety.

    Using the back door resulted in a limp snake.

    Looking at some of those bottom pictures, it appears that the skin has been damaged in some kind of attack. It doesn't seem to be shedding, so maybe your dogs did the business and got lucky.

    I doubt very much that it wouldn't have retaliated if you'd stood on it (they often give dry bites if they don't see you as a food source, but you would have been at least been bitten) and I don't think standing on it would have been enough to kill it. Unless you really have been piling in those deep fried Mars bars of late.

    Yours,

    Steve Halwin

    That cobra definitely looks to have been mauled by the dogs.

    Out of interest, the daughter stood on a white-lipped pit viper a few years ago and received a bite for her efforts. That one seemed to be a dry bite.

    Snake bite

    That doughnut based antivenom is the way forward.

    Coincidentally, I used to get those white-lipped pit vipers in my garden in Central Thailand fairly regularly. They were one of the more pleasant things that came to my door if truth be told.

    Just read the thread, must have been a right scare, glad she was ok and seemed to take it on the chin. I'm sure the doughnuts gave her a bit of Dutch courage!

    Last night while out to feed my cats, I do it at night so the dogs are not out to chase them, I came across a snake. It wasn't very big only about half a metre long.
    At the time I didn't know what it was as I had never seen one like it before. This morning after searching on Google I am sure it was a Banded Krait.
    Looked very nice but now I know it is very venomous I am not so sure I like the fact that is out there somewhere.
    I think it is time to be much more careful and to make sure I wear better footwear than flip flops and also use gloves when cleaning up.
    I'm sorry I don't have a picture to share as I don't carry my phone around with me around the house.
