Two days ago, I had a visitor that entered my home (inside) from the field (which begins behind my home and <20m from the side of my home. Here is a picture taken about 20m from my home. Here is a picture of my visitor, Naja kaouthia. Sorry for not taking a picture before capture, but my family's safety and securing the little Naja was my first concern. Here are pictures from the Naja kaouthia release, away from any home and in an area where I have seen the same species in the field (one from very close range that crawled right up to me). The reason for its common name: Monocled Cobra Chased to the safety of the leaf litter, bushes and trees: No, I usually do not capture venomous snakes, even though they are part of my field research. I am usually content with identification, conditions of capture (weather/microclimate/behavior), approximate size, exact location and time. However, I will capture them if they are in danger or people are in danger (such as entering a populated neighborhood), so I definitely do not suggest people come over here and capture Naja or some of the other dangerous snakes. It is not like the US or Europe here, they have some seriously dangerous snakes in Southeast Asia.
