Someone accidentally let a monocled cobra loose in Ocala, Florida. Its bad enough that its a cobra. But this particular snake has some of the most fact-acting venom in the world. It can kill in under an hour.

I hate to make prejudgments, but in my experience, anyone who has a pet snake is a few McNuggets short of a happy meal. Seemingly, Florida is filled with this type of people. It should get along with all of the other invasive species residing in the Everglades these days.

I agree. In fact I was wondering about the hybrid offspring...

That could be nasty, a monocled poisonous anaconda.

Well, that's 2 idiots to blame.

The accused for trying to handle a hot snake without licence or experience and the licensed owner for allowing said idiot to do so.

The owner should be charged also.

Unfortunately, Ocala is quite a long way from the Everglades. I'm not sure the people in that part of the state are as accustomed to dangerous invasive species.

Point taken.

Of course, that being said, in the Ocala National Forest, there is an existing population of non-native rhesus monkeys.

Breaking news that happened about 2 months ago. I just got off the phone with my daughter who lives in Ocala and she laughed at me for trying to warn her about old news. Thanks. Even your article states that court papers were filed earlier in April.

So there is the possibility of seeing a snake/monkey fight in Florida on Youtube at some point in the near future.

This may not be completely bad.

Are rhesus monkeys made out of peanut butter and chocolate?

The article is dated 4/20/17 and does not state when the snake escaped. Earlier in April could be last week since no date is given. Sorry, but I don't have any relatives to call in Florida to confirm the dates.

BTW, is the snake still out there on the loose? You didn't bother to mention that...

This isn't like a fifteen foot long boa. These snakes are only four to five feet long and lightening fast. I thought it was worth mentioning considering how lethal this particular snake is. Next time I will be sure to check with your sister first...

Ocala National Forest, or "The Forest" as the locals there call it, is beyond vast. That snake could die of old age out there without ever even crossing paths with a human.

Not good, but wouldn't be the first deadly snake loose down there! Over ten years ago, had a guy who works in a Florida zoo, with the snakes, tell me that, if you see a snake that isn't a native, it's as likely to be deadly as not. Lots of stupid people letting them go down there!!

And it begins...
Couldn't happen to a nicer state!

I was thinking of stocking the local bass lake with pirana.
Or gators.
Perhaps it's fortunate that I have learned never to believe 'my' thoughts! *__-

The article is dated 4/20/2017. If you had read the article though you would have known that it wasn't a recent event. It did not say that the snake escaped earlier in April, but that court documents had been filed then. Nowhere in the article does it state whether or not the snake has been captured so how can you expect me to mention that it is still on the loose. As a matter off fact, if it had mentioned that, I wouldn't have had a reason to respond to your post. You can check with my sister if you like but I am not sure what she can tell you from Ohio. Again if you had read what you are posting about you would know that it is my daughter that lives in Ocala. Happy days!

Perhaps it is time for Florida's next invasive species: the mongoose!

I did read the article you assjack... That is how I knew it was dated 4/20/17. And it does not state when the snake escaped. As I already stated, just for you, the article says court papers were filed earlier in April, but does not elaborate further. It could have been just days before the article was printed, even the day before. You don't know.

You were the one coming off like you knew more about it than me having spoken to your daughter in Ocala. I thought, since she was literally laughing out loud according to you, that she must know something. I guess your smugness and attitude was all for nothing but your own amusement.

Sorry I said sister instead of daughter. Once I determine that a post is nothing more than whining and an attempt at a cheap shot I pretty much disregard its content. I scan it quickly, which is more than it deserves, and answer accordingly.

To recap: you have a daughter in Ocala who thinks this is old news but didn't say how old, doesn't know what the status of the snake is, laughs at you, and seems to know no more than I do having read one article about this. You seem convinced that the snake escaped much earlier than April and that I should know that for some reason even though the article makes no mention of it. Court papers were filed earlier than the 20th. That is all it says. That could mean the day before or three weeks before. The snake could have been reported missing the same day the papers were filed for all you know.

They're already getting stocked with snakeheads.

Honestly, these times in which we live are truly of biblical proportion, unique in human history!
I find myself constantly Grateful to be Here! Now!
"In another dimension, with voyeuristic intention, well secluded, I see all!" *__-
I wouldn't be surprised to find 'snakeheads' in Revelation somewhere.
Imagine a 400 pound snakehead!

Ia, Ia, Cthulhu...
