Search continues for cobra that escaped from Florida home

Search continues for cobra that escaped from Florida home

The Ocala Star Banner has reported that a very venomous tan and yellow monocled cobra has escaped from a Florida home.

He was searching for the cobra in its container when he lifted off the lid, allowing the snake to spring toward him and slither away. The man called Purdy who rushed home.

Kennedy has pleaded no contest to one count of violating a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rule, in exchange for having two other counts dropped.

FWC officers searched the room and the entire house, including outside and underneath, but could not find the snake, nor could they determine if it has ventured outside.

Wildlife officials say the apprentice shouldn't have been left alone in the sealed room.

Kurt Dotten said, "I was concerned to a point, but I know the neighbor; He's a good person".

Health expert discusses prevention and early detection of kidney disease
Baxter has a long legacy of supporting the kidney disease community, and has been a sponsor of World Kidney Day for many years. The Kidney Foundation of Canada, BC & Yukon Branch exists to help prevent kidney disease or delay the onset.

The hunt is on for a missing 2-foot-long cobra that went missing Monday evening from a home in Ocala, Fla., reports CBS affiliate WKMG-TV.

She said the snakes are typically shy, tend to hide from people and only strike if threatened.

FWC is urging people in the area of the snake's home - 900 block of NE Ninth Street - to "use caution" until the cobra is captured.

Owners must complete at least 1,000 hours of experience with venomous reptiles and provide two reference letters from license holders.

"This is something they check into on a daily basis to make sure the venomous reptiles are caged properly", Weber said. The highly venomous snake belongs to a private resident. Do not try to capture the snake.

Kennedy's trial is expected to begin March 15.
