My last snake of the year was found in Singapore a couple of days ago. While maybe not big for it's species, at 10 feet (3 meters) it was still a large snake.
Thanks to all who have supported my YouTube channel this year, it mean a lot. I make these vidoes for you guys, the herpers. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I think you also found a king cobra roughly around this time last year. What's up with Christmas king cobras Lou?

I applaud you for relying on your camera zoom to punch in here. It behaved more naturally given so much room. That is a well earned beer!

Thanks again for sharing such fantastic footage from your adventures sir

Staying home (not panning or zooming) on the wide shot when it crossed the road was fantastic. So many would have zoomed in, but you didn’t and allowed the home run! Well done.

Also, very creative with the celebratory beer storyline. Again, well done! The M Toxins shirt hurt the piece though (inside joke) :D

Thanks guys. Second king for me. Unreal experience to watch it do it's thing. Yeah Scott, I wasn't really sure what I was gonna do when I knew it was going to cross. I figured wide was the way to go. Didn't really know how long it was until it crossed. Luckily no one came from the other direction. Can't believe this has over 500,000 views on YT. Crazy. Thanks for the support.

Very nice Lou! What a thrill that must have been for you.

It was great to see you the other day at the show. It's been a while since we've been in the field together. Chance is all grown up!

Thanks for the support guys! Steve, I almost didn't recognize you at first at the expo. Yeah, Chance is almost as tall as I am! I must be getting old. Look forward to getting out in the field with you again someday.
