    I feel sorry about evacuees. I also worry about shortage of drinking water and foods. I hope everyting is going to b normal as early as possible.

    I think that the flood won’t go as soon we think it will because there aren’t a lot of countries helping Thailand, and days pass by and the flood seems to have gotten worse and worse, and we are running low on food and water. And 362/432 people have lost their lives, and so many people now live in tents.

    I researched about the green mambas snakes that escaped. I searched on google: what happened with the green mambas snakes in thailand.
    And I really wanted to research about this because i’m scared of snakes so I wanted to know what happened to them so far.
    I found a really good site on google that explained me what happened.
    the site: http://www.thailandsnakes.com/venomous/front-fanged/15-green-mambas-loose-in-bangkok-flood/

    it said:
    Recently 2 adult and 13 juvenile eastern green mambas escaped from a house located within the flooded area in Bangkok, Thailand.

    Some were caught, some killed, and apparently nobody bitten (yet) by one. They did import some antivenin and have many vials available, at what I think was 300,000 THB – per vial. Yes, about $10,000 USD per vial. If bitten you might need many vials – so stay far away from any green snake in Bangkok for the time being.

    Mambas are so dangerous for their speed and extra long strikes. Not to mention the complete absence of antivenin for the species in Thailand prior to this. Mambas are excellent climbers and are very fast. Do not try to kill or capture one, you will almost definitely be bitten, and probably die from it – if a good bite. Mambas strike fast, often, and unpredictably, and not just once, but many times, if threatened.
