The Rudnicks Go To The Phoenix Zoo!

Hello all! I hope you all had a great week and I’m sure your looking forward to the weekend! (:

This past weekend – my husband, my daughter and I went on a trip to the Phoenix Zoo. It has been – um… about 10 years since I’ve been and I had forgotten how much fun it is!

My daughter said this area was cool!! Not… (: This is a “Snouted Cobra” also known as the banded Egyptian cobra found in Southern Africa. It’s a highly venomous species with neurotoxic venom.A bite can affect breathing, and if left untreated, may cause respiratory failure and death. Initial symptoms include pain and local swelling that may result in blistering. Typically, victims are bitten on the lower leg, usually at night. (Source: Wikipedia) Given the opportunity, the cobra will flee from danger. When, concerned, it will raise up its body and flatten its neck to look as intimidating as possible. (Source: Phoenix Zoo) He was tired so he was resting. LOL
