Natures' Way.

These are pretty flowers just looking up at you brightening up your day

In the news they showed two boys who were killed, by an escaped python, from a store.
It got in through the ceiling and killed them.

And yet as this video shows, kids in Thailand, are very used to snakes.
The parents teach them from day one, how to behave with them and since I saw this with my own eyes,
I can say it is true.I was not able to get stats on how many kids are killed every year as a result of pythons.
More can be said of cobras and other poisonous snakes.
Why is it when they are amonst other snakes, they don't bite them?

Our society goes too far to disassociate animals from people.
So as a result, we know nothing about animals or how to behave with them or act when we come across
them .
 When we panic, we die.

When faced with a cobra , what do you do? There must be some kind of behavior to defend yourself with,
that can be used cause some people deal with snakes every day.

I did not see very many aggressive pythons because they were all well fed and thus docile and we could even find ourselves swimming with one in a pool.
Maybe they also give them something to make them docile. This, I don't know.
But kids living with pythons is a very normal thing or was back then in Thailand.
Thais like to impress tourists with pythons and some sit in cages with chickens and they even pray
to them, asking deliverance from the python spirit.(satan).

It is funny but I dreamt of a snake and a child riding one and then I read of the two children being killed by the python. Weird. It woke me up.Sometimes life is weird. I seem to be making up for lost time becaise I rarely dream and then three came in a row.

Everything you learn in life, is good for you to know.
The answer never lies in hiding or taking what's out there, out of harms way, but in teaching people
how to deal with dangerous animals.
Would a bear kill you? Or is it a hungry bear that kills you? Could a hungry bear be distracted enough for escape with a jar of honey, rather than a bullet?

Why keep any animals in a small space, we can't afford to feed?
Do they kill all the crocodiles in Florida cause they kill people?
No, they still live in the swamps and  you never know if one will come to visit you one day.
It's just part of life as everything else is. Do we get rid of all cars when one kills one?
Buses? Airplanes?
 Knowing how to deal with it yourself is also a part of life one has to learn to live with.
Granted, Canada is not snake country but still, we do have them and usually they high tail it fast,
if they see a human.
So why was this different?
Why did a snake come into a room with sleeping children and kill them?

This is the right question to ask.

Living in a country with only worms, cows, pigs and some deer, I am not familiar with snakes and other dangerous creatures ! I have only seen them in a zoo ! lol !

As I have no intention of being in the vicinity of a snake that could eat me I'm not worried that I don't know how to behave in the company of one. ;)

Hilary I need the captcha otherwise so much stuff comes in, mostly porn, I spend the whole day deleting So blogging is not fun anymore.People always do things to spoil everything for others.So immature.

The python story we had here was an awful story. Pet stores sell exotic animals and when they grow they escape or get thrown out and then innocent people get hurt.

Gattina - we also have zoos and pet stores and people who obtain them.
They escape and can become a danger to others. I personally do not like snakes. They can be huge and fast. One hit and you go unconscious and then they easily crush your body with the extraordinary muscles.One bite and within minutes, you are dead.

Akelamalu - Do you know what your neighbor has in his house? I certainly don't.
It pays to know everything or at least have some curiousity. lol No one expects to be around any of those things.
Those little boys never expected to be killed by a python in their bedroom sleeping either. They never stood a chance and yet in Thailand it is common to see pythons with kids.Must be it was hungry.
