Snakes on a Plane

O.k., not snakes on a plane. Snakes in our house. Yes, it has already happened. I hadn’t planned on posting today, but then this happened last night


Yes, on top of our toilet paper roller (sigh of relief because it is broken and we haven’t been using it!) we found that beaut. Yep, another baby green mamba. I know it doesn’t look like much, but they are super dangerous. I wish we had documentation of what followed. Our guards will kill snakes for 100LD (about $1.50 USD) so we called  Joseph over and asked him to kill it for us. After locating the snake Joseph whacked at him with a stick as the snake flipped and twirled around.

As our  friend Patti said- “I’m scared for Joseph, but not scared enough to help.”

Finally the snake gave up the ghost! Joseph is my new hero. Really. Forever. I’m making an “I heart Joseph” t-shirt.


  1. oh my goodness!!! That is soo scary!!!

  2. Awwww, it's just little Denny. (Dendroaspis viridis)

  3. Umm, so I don't handle snakes well venomous or not. You (and Joseph) are braver than I. I just googled these bad boys....stay safe!

  4. Oh my WORD! I would flip out if I saw this anywhere near me, much less in my home. You guys are brave! We love you! Stay safe!!!
