Niko sure pia nyoka inajiuliza ‘Faida ya human ni nini?’ I’m pretty sure more humans have killed snakes than snakes killed humans.

we are very lucky the king cobra is not in Africa. Very scary, huge and venomous snake

We got the black mambo, very venomours

Seeing them on picture is scary enough.I have always wondered how I would react if I came face to face with one of these

Noma - I see why it’s said even snakes are afraid of snakes. Back in the years niliua nyingi sana when ploughing land na tractors. Not sure I can stand these reptiles anymore.

Ophidiophobia, or ophiophobia, is a particular type of specific phobia, the abnormal fear of snakes. It is sometimes called by a more general term, herpetophobia, fear of reptiles. The word comes from the Greek words “ophis” (ὄφις), snake, and “phobia” (φοβία) meaning fear.

To me a venomous or non venomous snake zote ni nyoka. I hate those animals. I went to snake park and I almost collapsed because of nausea.

Apparently those who live in the places infested with these animals know how to handle the situation incase they come across such serpents.Its like the Maasai and the wildlife they know how to evade,kill or avoid any of the species including some of these reptiles

Yes, Yeeeessss!
