It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

Meet one of my other neighbors, the forest snake.  Standing an average of 2 meters high, the forest snake is one of the largest of the cobra family.  They are very fast and because of this no significant attacks have occured.  They are not agressive snakes, but will defend themselves if they feel threatened.  There home is made, as their name indicates, in the forrest.  Where it is dark and damp.  They are a popular inhabitant of the Kakamega Rain Forest.
