Dare, Courage or just Women ??


Have you ever dared to do such a thing?? It may be outrageous for some, courageous for other and yet absurd for many – as in the case of this lizzie love

But a brave lady we’ve here … no matter its poisonous or not; it takes guts to do such an act. And see how at-home the snake feels in her hand :-) What a beautiful hood it makes too …!

I confess I wont ever be able to hold such a thing in my hand ever … would you or have you ???

ps: which snake is this, any ideas??

    It is not a King Cobra by any means, although it is a from the cobra family.

    Hats off to the lady with such courage, hope the Mr. Slithers didn’t get pissed off! :)

    A for [Pine]Apple is that you?

    I thought for quite some time if i could do that ! even if the teeth of cobra were surely off. Probably i can never hold any snake with such boldness. To me snake is all poison. May be i was made to think so from my childhood. The snake is after all a snake and can attack or masquerade an attack and thhat can be very frightening. Anyway the lady looks graceful and daring. Hats off.

    Shaheer: I couldn’t know but seems things went fine :)

    MB: Yup gutsy :>

    Self: Only cobras have hoods naa??

    Phil: Your Mr. Slithers never looked so happy else where ;-) And no man it’s not me, I would have fainted :P

    Self: you’re saying Phil’s king cobra — heheh :P

    (Somehow King Cobras always come into my mind in Black color :s)

    Gulzar: well ya the scare factor is always there – no matter teeth are out or in :)

    This cobra has no teeth to inject any poison that it may have. I assume the picture is from the Snake House at Ayub Park where I previously saw the snake keeper get attacked repeated (without harm) as he cleaned the windows of the cage. Still, this is a muscular creature and I wouldn’t want to get hit with that type of force nonetheless.

    Well done!

    The other day I visited Riyadh Zoo on one of the weekly specified men-only days, and saw fat long snakes wrapping themselves around the necks of little kids like dupattas while the daddies of the kids took their snaps.
