I paid another bounty out for a poisonous snake which was found by Muduga while working this morning. There was no consensus among us all on what kind it was however. It was small and according to everyone present very poisonous and deadly.
We are working to clear all the ground around the Guesthouse and refurbished tukalus.
Also, as I mention in my last newsletter we would like to put tile on the veranda of house. In my last encounter with a cobra we learned it was easy to kill it while in the kitchen and perhaps why it did not strike my bare foot (which was only an inch away ) was because it was on our tile floor. Because of kitchen’s slick tile surface it was difficult for a snake to move. Around the the Guesthouse we have 10 foot veranda on three sides and it is 15 feet in the front. Because of what we have learned about a snake’s ability to move on tile we would like to tile our veranda to create an extra barrier between the Guesthouse and snakes! It would also make it easier to clean. The estimation to do this tile work is $3000+-.
