Picture: Vader the forest cobra

After a week of seeing Vader but being unable to capture him on photo we were successful yesterday! He looks in good condition and judging by the speed he shot off at, he is as happy as Larry with his new home.

All in all a good day, we located Lucas the little Black Mamba and even Chelsea the big Black Mamba had decided to disengage herself from her nice warm bed and venture outside for a spot of sunbathing.

After a week of eluding us she was so keen to show us she was still alive that we almost stepped on her! Only when we’d seen her did she decide that that was enough and she shot off into the bush again. Presumably tag-teaming with Lucas to keep us on our toes and searching further and further into the bush for the both of them.

    You should be thankful to your stars that she went back into the bush and you didn’t put his foot on her because without any doubt these black mambas are very venomous bite that take so much lives every year.

      This post is about Forest Cobras. Whilst they are indeed highly venomous Michael, they are similar to Black Mambas as they will actively avoid people. As we were not harrrassing the Forest Cobra it was unconcerned with us and merely wished to continue his hunting and hiding.
