Re: Snake fangs for research

It beats me that "educated" people can even consider evolution - actually sad :smt017 Life is way to complicated to have started from a bang - come people anyone with more than a standard 3 should realise it takes more to get life into any thing. Life cannot be created by evolution...........

Re: Northern Cape January 2016 Creature Feature (many pictur

Thanks Allen. I see what you mean now, that is quite a compliment! Chopper, the snake was very large for a cape cobra and looked blacker in real life (my equipment is very basic) , but maybe you are right. I personally have not seen a black spitter longer than 1.5m and have on plenty occasion seen ...

Re: Northern Cape January 2016 Creature Feature (many pictur

Lovely pics. That Black spitter is very "brown" for the species - I have only ever found shiny pitch black ones. Is that not a cape? I cannot see the pic so well.

Re: The Mamba with 9 Lives ***(WARNING : GRAPHIC IMAGES)***

For effort i will give you 100% - putting the snake through constant pain you get a 1%. Even if it does make i do not believe that it will be 100% to go back into the wild and do what mambas are supposed to do? I am also of the bunch who say rather should have put it down as it will not really serve...

Re: Indian Mynah

Nice bird! your daughter doesnt look too keen on the falcon (or perhaps the raw meat) lol! Not at all - she loves it and is actually a star with wild animals.

Re: Reptiles & Amphibians from around KZN

Great pics - that dove is a Emerald (Green) spotted wood dove and they are not capable of flying slowly due to their high wing load. That python must be a few centimeters longer after latching on to that guy if it was in flight. Really a once in 10 million chance of getting a wild pic like that.

Re: Ophiophagus Cobras and other elapids

Mambas eating other snakes must be a VERY rare thing - they are normally very fussy about their warm blooded prey.....

Re: Assistance with identification of snake

Tylor Hi. These are specialists feeders that will only feed on young lizrads and frogs. Its best to release it and let nature take its course. D Or if you really want to keep a snake get yourself a brown house snake and keep it for a while...lovely little snakes. If you have a good supply of frogs ...

Re: Indian Mynah

Or just become a Falconer and hunt them with an African Goshawk or Gabar Goshawk - GREAT fun. One of my hawks took 24 mynas in an hour back in the days when i was still young and flew hawks out of car windows - now i just fly Peregrine Falcons.
