Borneo is the world’s third largest island. I once lived on Borneo for a while with my family and it was joyful to see quite a few wild animals visit my backyard. Actually I shouldn’t say that it was I who was the visitor. During the first week, I found a clutch of eggs under our bamboo trees. I was told they were the eggs of a black spitting cobra (射毒眼镜蛇). The snake is common in the area. Poison from its bite can kill a person in one to six hours.

My husband and I and our three children thought of many ways to be on the lookout, especially when we stepped into the yard. We even made up a song, which went: Cobra, cobra, are you there? Please don’t fall onto my chair.

One afternoon, we saw the cobra for the first time. Our friends and our family had just finished our lunch and a few of us were chatting when one of the guests saw the cobra. She was on a branch of a palm tree, less than 10 feet from where we were chatting. Everyone came out to see her,and chairs were arranged as if for a concert. The cobra lay still. Only through a pair of binoculars (双筒望远镜)could we see her breathing. She seemed to enjoy all the attention. We were surprised by her beauty.

Later I realized that a cobra would naturally stay near the palm tree whose coconuts (椰子) are rich food for mice and squirrels, which are food of the cobra, and therefore the tree was a great place for a cobra.
