Capies in the hood.

Two female Cape Cobras. They are 8 months old and changing colour every shed. :smt007
I will show some before and after pics later.

If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Thanks .They don't get to eat very often but they still look healthy after the long winter.

Here is a recent find.
Sadly the pics were not taken where he was found. He did a very cool pose from the top of a bush but we couldn't get picks with the dog on the attack.

And a picture of my mean girl. Do not be fooled by her halo.

As long as you have the correct paperwork(permits), you are allowed to keep them.

In the western Cape, same as several other provinces, you aren't allowed to keep indigenous reptiles without a permit, also in the Western Cape you need permits for exotic animals too.
