Mangroves definitely pack a more powerful punch. Agree that just because they're rear fanged doesn't mean they should be taken lightly.
i let a false water cobra chew on a leather glove,after a minute there was a fair size puddle of venom on the glove

don't know how big your squirrels are in the States though Chuck ?


as long as the prey has not been exposed to pesticides,etc...

over here folk will feed wild prey if they have access to them,most folk shoot the prey,then use a medical metal detector to find the bullet or pellets used,then remove them

free food if you have permission to shoot on unfarmed countryside type land


cheers shaun
Lol the squirrels here in the states can get as big as small dogs. The brown squirrels my dad hunts some can be 15-17 inches long not including the tail and have ALOT of girth.

most of my Carpets would still handle some of those big guys mate

also for all the larger snakes it's free food,do you not have anything large enough to eat what your dad shoots ?

as long as the shot is removed and the squirrels are not exposed to pesticides,etc,they make ideal prey

or do you guys eat them yourselves ?

ive heard squirrels are very tasty


cheers shaun
