hi ramangill, snake is my nightmare ... i cant even watch it on tv and i will dream it is chasing me ... if i see snake in my house of room , i will run out first and will never get close to kill it ... Leave it to any other people to do the dirty job .. It has been years i saw snake , since i am staying in apartment, my fear is lesser ... but at times when i dream, i can imagine, the snake climbing up the walls to my house I dont kill the snake for fear (i am a cowardy coward ) cheers

I would definately kill it! I don't think that I would be able to take any other course of action if I was in immediate danger! Hopefully I would be able to carefully kill it without being bitten up.

It is sad to have to kill anything. But if it's them or me, then it's them.

I would, I've read that baby snakes pack more venom than an adult one.

For my protection and the protection of my family, you better believe it. That snake(s) would be history.

snake is not for protection (for me). i would kill it. definitely yes because snakes are threats. even if it is just an egg. quite scary.

What did that python eat? A truck tire? If the snake were in my home and poisonous, yes, I would kill it if it was threatening me or my pets. Baby snakes (I don't know what they're called either) are another matter. I wouldn't necessarily kill the babies, but I would definitely lock my pets up and call animal control because if you have baby snakes you have a nest, and mom is around somewhere. They don't take care of their babies the way mammals do, but snakes tend to nest together, so you might have several around.

Probably not something to be scared about, although I see you live in India and that's where cobras and kraits, among others, are found. As you well know of course. I live in the USA, in West Virginia, and we only have the 2 poisonous snakes, thank heaven. Most snakes are more scared of you than you are of them. But don't corner them. That's when they can get mean, trying to escape. I hope the one you killed just got in somehow from outside. Stay safe.
