    I had caught a pretty cool find at my local thrift store. Its a snake head sealed in resign. A paper weight. I don't want to upset anyone on the site, so let me stress that I don't condone killing anything just to put its head in a tourist shop.
    But that doesn't mean i could pass this up!

    I'm fairly familiar with snakes, but this one is boggling me. I can't identify what species it is. I found a link to buy this exact piece on amazon, its the only place i could find it for sale. I was hoping it would say what kind of snake it was. It doesn't.
    Can anyone tell?

    I had thought it might be a cobra, but all of the pictures i see of cobras, the nose is more rounded. Mine looks about the same as the one in the link, but the nose is more pointed then it.

    Best guess?

    What a strange and unusual find! (I'd buy it, too!)

    No clue, but hopefully someone else here will know.

    Cool find!!! It looks like a cobra to me also. I'm wondering if the face was just distorted when they made it. Other than that I have no clue :)
