In my "wild youth" my friends and I killed a boomslang that was threatening to bite my mother. Having read about it, we skinned it and then cooked and ate it, having first pulled out the poison bearing fangs. It was actually delicious. I must say that was the only time and I don't think I would do it again. The boomslang itself was such a "pretty" snake.

Hey, I eat a veggie meal twice a week, for economic and health reasons, and my one son is a vegetarian. However, I enjoy meat, and have no issues with eating it. I ate snake ONCE, and believe that one should try new things. Curiosity keeps one young.

HE HE HE, That takes me back, Boet! I used to laugh and laugh at the sight of "afkop-hoenders" racing off after having their heads copped off. They look so funny. Did you ever "hypnotise" chickens as a kid? Also hysterically funny.

Aug 25, 2014 1:49 | 1 replies


Hypnotize it? Maybe, I think I once did. It was a chick. I know about the headless chicken. We used to chase it. LOL

You lie a chicken on sand or something, with it's neck extended. Then you take a stick or something and draw a line from the beak outward for about 15 inches or so. Thje chicken will then just lie and there and make this odd gurgling sound for quite a while, maybe up to 20 minutes.... and it goes off laying for a day or two. Very funny to see. Kids' stuff, I know, but hey I was a kid when I did those things.

Seems today your childhood memories came back, it is a nice thing though Rob. when I think of the things I did as a kid I sometimes look at the mirror and laugh at me

Not really, but the poison was still in the fangs so if they pierce skin, it's wham......... Like being "stung" by a dead bee.

Aug 25, 2014 2:3 | 2 replies


Crazy is relative. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly. If you go to the far east, they eat anything that doesn't move fast enough - spiders, snakes, roaches, you name it!

Oh come off it Budha! I am not "encouraging it. I was simply relaying an anecdote out of my youth, when I ONCE cooked a snake. Jeez, get some perspective.

something similar happened a while back, I moved a hliphas (that cured wooden block that is used to lay a railway track on) and underneath it i found this black snake with a big head, i cut of its head with a spade and it open its mouth as I did so, after taking the hliphas to where it was needed and feeding the body to the chickens i took a small stick and stuck it in the open mouth, the thing slamed shut and i could not remove the stick. i was so glad i didnot try a finger or done anything stupid with that head.

Generally I like animals, but I just can't bring myself to like snakes, maybe they are presented in a negative way, I mean sharks bite ppl off everytime, so do crocs but I can't hate them, why can't I have same feeling with snakes as I have with other animals

And the photograph here is also very amusing. The way that guy is crouching he is going to be bitten on his "snake" if that cobra is quick enough. Not a very smart position, in my opinion.

Just make sure you remove the venom before cooking it.

just make sure the head is dead then, once cut a snake in 2 half pieaces, the head half ran away.

no need, just cook the snake thouroghly, high temeratures kill the vernom. When far from doctors the best way of getting reed of venom is immensing the beaten part/body in very hot water, vernom disintergrate at high temps.
