Hey, when you are five years old, been watching shows about cobras. The one of those things about 6' long does it's best cobra impression, dang near in your face, it will get your attention. Only one I have ever seen do that, all the rest have rolled over and flattened themselves out. I got to admit I have found many, that really looked like they had been run over a few times, then 10 minutes later they were gone.

They are cool snakes.

Burn the area down! Just kidding! Those are some great snakes but will scare the poop out of you for sure if you have never seen one!

Just me, but I believe these dudes are better actors than some of Hollywood’s finest. Quite an entertaining show they put on. Only thing that comes close is the fake broken wing acting of a mama killdeer. Sometimes Ma Nature’s critters just make you smile.

Heck yeah. I hold the current record at 48 5/8". A 6 footer would blow mine out of the water.

A few years ago on opening morning of Archery season it was actually cool for a change. After my morning hunt when I was walking out, there was one sunning on my trail. I nudged him a little with a stick and then was able to watch him put on a show for 10 minutes.
