Hi folks, this is Mike Eastman. Back in 2004
when I was in Tanzania filming and
hunting I came up on a real rare
occurrence. There is a black forest cobra
when we came around the corner he was
fighting with a puff adder. If you notice
there the tire tracks we stopped we
backed up we turned everything off and
waited an hour, and here he come back out
to hammer this puff adder.
Now let me tell you I’ve seen them fight
before and what this is all about is
that black forest cobra is going to kill
that puff adder who is also a poisonous
snake and eat him.
I sit there for four hours filming and
taking stills and these two guys would
fight and the interesting thing is that
cobra would run out of venom then he’d
go back into the brush there into the
grass and he stayed there for about 40
minutes and then he come back out and
find a puff adder there, and start
hammering him again.
One thing I noticed when I was filming
this, that cobra would not get close
to that puff adder’s head. He always
hammering in the middle of his body and
that puff adder couldn’t get to him.
By the time we left that black forest
cobra had pretty well killed that puff
adder, and then I imagine during the
night he ate him.
You know we’re like you,
we have a history of hunting over
generations and I hope you really
enjoyed this and you might want to
