...until they BITE you!
I was watching some show about king cobras on Animal Planet yesterday. Yikes...that kinda stayed with me throughout last night.
I'm used to snakes that large and thick being NON-venomous (constrictors, pythons and anacondas).
But when you get something 12-15 feet long, AND it's poisonous as can be...
That's just too much to deal with.
