Cool for me, not so cool for the Cobra... heh!
He's a beauty though.. i hope they release him somewhere deep in the jungle... Cobra's are becoming extinct.. and they are endangered... I remember growing up in a farm that's next to the world's oldest tropical forest (that's in Malaysia), and there were hundreds and hundreds of cobras around.. you find them in the toilet sometimes, (you really need to look when you walk), in the chicken coop (be careful when collecting eggs), and in the tall grass, etc.. i have once came within an inch of a cobra in the grass...
It's a miracle we grew up without ever being bitten (goes to show that cobras don't really want to bite anyone if they are not disturbed, like being stepped on).. though a few of my dogs have died from cobra bites... (probably because they fight cobras all the time)....
BTW: You can find a lot of snake skin 'stuff' in thailand... like belts, shoes, wallets, etc.

The next time it happens you could always hide in your OS until animal control arrives.
Only problem with that is the OS might be the favorite hiding place for snakes.. hehe...

With all those critters about, I wouldn't want vented speakers/subs if you get my drift.
Exactly right... dark holes... i might have to check my OS everytime now...

Still lots of jungles in Malaysia... I remember encountering so many different type of animals... in fact, 40 odd years ago, when there were jungles all around my old house, there were even tiger tracks... there were all kinds of snakes (vipers, cobras, you name it, even a king cobra that's over 15 feet long),... but as time goes by, most of the animals started disappearing... i have seen lots of bees totally disappearing...

Not sure where to find a mongoose... we used to have geese.. and they will chase and eat snakes... and they also chase us little boys... hahaha....
