    That's a beauty.

    No not related at all, the snake came over the garden back wall from an unused big piece of land where they now have started some sort of work, I guess it was disturbed by it all and went looking for a more peaceful place to roam

    I reckon that aussie guy planted the cobra in your back yard looking for some revenge for the hiding you gave him!

    he is a snake himself, or let me rephrase that, a worm, got to show the King Cobra some respect but not that guy.

    Looks like a King Cobra. They eat other snakes that eat the rats. So not to be encouraged.

    The most effective weapon against a snake (apart from a shotgun), is a length of heavy gauge fencing wire doubled over and twisted up to make a whip like weapon. A three meter Cobra would have a pretty good strike range, so maybe not a good idea to go into mortal combat unless you are young and nimble and confidant of your reflexes. I have to say that going to war with a 3 meter fast moving King Cobra would be a pretty daunting prospect for anyone. Dont really blame you for staying away. Perhaps buy a mongoose?

    If it really is three meters it must be a King- none of the other cobra species gets over two meters. He'll rise up a meter, and be able to strike to a distance slightly further. They strike downward; cobras are fixed-fang snakes that bite rather than punch straight out like a viper, nor are they as quick as a viper or python. At any rate, Kings don't like to be around people, and he'll probably piss off elsewhere. I wouldn't really recommend tangling with him without a firearm, although a homemade sjambok as described by Panda is probably about as good a weapon as anything- a good long rake would work OK, too, to keep him at a distance. They tire quickly. Shame to have to kill him, and again only do so if he seems to be hanging around (they are territorial). Too bad there isn't a way to bribe him into paying your neighbor a visit.

    Can't believe your scared of snakes you bloody wimp.

    When ever I get a snake in the garden, I quickly run in the house, stand on a chair and scream like a little girl. Like any real man would!

    My GF was screaming at me to run and get the plastic pellet toy air gun and shoot it, the neighbours wife was running around closing doors, and I was trying to find out where my docile imported 7 pedigree dog was, then I ran and got the gun but thought better of it, my GF again shouted at me to shoot it, but I said no where is my phone I want some pictures, I found my phone got the photos and then shoot at the snake with the plasticpellets, they cant penetrate snakeskin but bothered it enough to make it crawl back over the wall, I hope it has found a nice place where it can be undisturbed by us crazy humans, and humans dont get in its way.

    We had a 3m snake looking in our house in ChiangDao last year. We though it could be a king cobra. It was dark colord , too.
    Later on we found behind the neighbars house. It was a common rat snake.
