Black Banded Snake

Last night, my brother called me "would you like to take snake picture". In spite of the fact that I'm really afraid of snakes, I ran away to the snake with my camera. This was the second snake we found in our house in one week. I took a few pictures in the state of fear, of course of very bad quality. This snake has brown color with black/dark brown bands and is consider to be very venomous snake. Both the snakes we found in our house were young ones, probably from a new hatch, measuring about one and half feet. The first one was almost band less, while this one has developed bands, but all are not turned black yet.

The pictures are good especially the first one, not bad as you said.

I don't like snakes. They freaked me out. But some snakes are so beautiful, you just stay looking at them. [if they are not of cobra variety.] It happened to me once. It was a small beautiful looking snake. I found it in a tree. It was good in climbing trees, walls, windows, everything. I must say. I was just few distances away from it. Admiring and appreciating the colours of its skin and how fast it was in its movements. Then it suddenly occurred to me, it was advancing towards me. I ran away.

I agree with Osaid, first image is much better than the rest.

Talking about snakes,some years ago, I visited Gurdhwara of Guru Nanak Dev ji in Nankana Sahib. Here, I took some photos from my cell phone as at that time, it was not allowed to bring camera inside.

I took that image from there.

Nice photos. I'm not afraid of snakes, but that may have more to do with the fact that there aren't many venomous snakes round here!

I agree: The photos are good. I'm not especially afraid of snakes, but I do prefer they stay outdoors.

This is a courageous act specially the first one in which the snake is directly looking at you, nah!!
