  • Hi dingo Was watching a FIstart video and in it they the black mamba could weigh as much as a vw beetle, is this statement true or does it have any truth in the real world. Love what you do. My husband sometimes watches your programs. We are living in Tasmania Australia with the only three snakes and they are all Venomous. They are tiger snakes, white lipped whip snake and copperhead snakes. Thanks for your time. Catrina

  • Hi Dingo I just came across a video of four cobras guarding a baby. If you have seen it can you comment on this...or please research it. One commentary states that the snakes mouths may have been sewn closed....why would those snakes be so calm having the baby touch them? Is this an act of cruelty to animals? I'd like to hear your opinion on the video...

    Kaveena SathabridgeKaveena Sathabridge29 päivää sitten
  • Shadow is to me a very beautiful snake & you can see the intelligence in those eyes. Awesome animal. Thor however, I'm not sure I can put it into words. You can also see the intelligence in his eyes but there is just something about him that commands respect & draws you to him. He is one breathtaking animal thats for sure. I have a healthy respect for snakes, we live semi rural & that has allowed me to seek out understanding them more. After having watched a few Reptile FIstartrs, my knowledge & outlook on snakes has over the years changed somewhat. I credit your channel Dingo in giving me not just knowledge & a changed perspective but also a real liking for these animals. Thor has been for a long time one of my favs.

  • Knowing your animals helps a lot when handling them. I had one that would slightly open its mouth when it thought it was almost in range, then an inch closer and he would strike but if you backed away an inch he would close his mouth. I almost prefer it when they are like Shadow and Goldie, it keeps you on your toes and you know you can't relax even for a second. Stay safe and God Bless!

  • Btw is it possible that a cross breeding b/w a king cobra and a west african forest cobra take place? If so, the resulting offspring might have a mixture of traits from both its parents and will be the ultimate king of venomous snakes.

U don't wanna be distracted whenever u are wiping the sweat. Saw a few of the replays seems like the snakes like to swipe at u whenever u are busy wiping sweat.

  • I read where these cobras do not necessarily bite but they slam their heads down ..similar to the males fighting over a female. They DONT bite eachother they "head butt". I think that is what Shadow is doing..he isnt biting but showing dominance with head butting. Gotta respect the cobras that arent just about biting.
