Photos: Snakes tangled in electric wires in Benin City

A LIB reader who lives in Benin sent in the pics. Says they, residence of Market Road in Ekosodin, Benin City, woke up this morning July 2nd to find several snakes bunched up and tangled in the electric wires in the street.
"We have been confused and keep on wondering just how they got there. We eventually looked for a way to get rid of them by removing them and using the electric power to burn them. We don't know the means by which they got there o, whether its through spiritual means, we are still wondering. May God help us" He said
Reminds me of that final scene in the Indian movie, Snake Girl. Remember when the snake girl fell from a building as a snake, landed on a railing and then changed into a human being? #runningthinz

that its explainable- on how the got there, as in the circle themselves to the stand and move up, but my question is...How do they climb walls? i have seen a snake on the outside window of the second floor of my house. without any means possible to aid there climbing just an emulsion painted wall.

LEGACY said...

Hmmm...Is there any tree around the poles? otherwise,I reserve my comment. Edo people can explain better.

How did they get there? See the trees? They used the trees to connect to the pole. Nothing spiritual for this one. If it was spiritual, the snake wouldn't have allowed you remove and electrocute them without some drama. Not everything in Benin is spiritual.

estelle said...

Nigerians and their superstition.Is it not obvious that they came via the trees close to the wires.Used to live in Episodic in the mid 80,d whilst in unidentified for my masters.Ekosodin is surrounded by thick forests and rubber plantations and I actually packed out of there cos I could not stand the daily sighting of snakes. Nothing strange about this.I guess it's the environment.
