    There is a lot of agricultural land around the house, much of it unplanted at the moment. There are field rats on much of the vacant land - good hunting. Also chickens about, including a couple of mine.

    You might want to set up a trap for it? Using one of your chickens for bait?

    Cheers. The guys have been beating surrounding lots today. So far, nothing.
    Probably cause it's hiding in your bathroom.....just waiting. That's what happens when you piss off a King Cobra apparently.....they go to Cobra training classes when they are young you know....

    Hey Koman, even Davis Knowlton wouldn't have the balls to take on a king cobra in unarmed combat

    My wife's uncle got bitten on the thumb by one and either he or his friend had to quickly chop off the top half. True story....I made a long post here on it once.
    Another time he was in a snake show and got bitten on the tongue by an 'ordinary' cobra. His heart stopped twice, he couldn't speak for a year, and all his teeth fell out.
    I met the guy....his English was quite good.

    I woke up one morning, came downstairs went to the power supply for the television to turn it on and almost shit myself. Laying beside the curtains and the power supply box was a green tree snake.

    After recovering from the surprise, got the broom and swept the lad out side where he belongs. Still don't know how or when he entered the house.

    I'm not into dispatching them either but the Missus was all a twitter about this last one she saw so he's in cobra heaven now but if she isn't around, I just toss 'em into my neighbors field. Thing is, we have lots of frogs, birds nests with eggs around the property so there's not much you can do to keep them out. Dogs are good at alerting you to these guys. It's the little green ones that hang out in the trees I'm not sure about.

    Heard an interesting take on why a Tookha (Dooka) however you spell the word - does that sound he makes. It seems a Tookha after time develops some kind of liver-crud (for want of another term) build-up and tries to attract these little green snakes into his gut to like 'clean it out' and then the snake goes his merry way.

    We have one Tooka living in the framework of a sala and he's up to 7 'Tookhas' now so his liver must really need attention!
