    Philippine Cobra definitely lives in Negros. As a matter of fact, they do live in Dumaguete.

    Years ago, when the wife was still staying in the village I would see her go after snakes with a shovel or other metal tool ferociously as they could go after the chickens. No fear at all.

    The only thing I've seen her freak out about are the centipedes (100 legs as she calls them); they are poisonous from what I've read and she has quite a number of stories about them growing up.

    Other than toads and the occasional rat we seem to have been lucky to not have too many other critters around the house. The dogs do seem to take out quite a number of rats and the toads are seasonal (not tasty to the dogs). A lot of geckos but I don't mind them, actually find them a bit fascinating to watch when they are going after bugs around the exterior lights.

    I guess I will have to correct myself. The Philippine cobra occurs mostly in the northern regions of the Philippines. They can be found on the islands of Luzon, Mindoro, Catanduanes, Azria, and Masbate. This species likely may occur in other neighboring islands, but this remains unconfirmed. Records from the Calamianes group and Palawan require confirmation
    While flying island to island by helicopter during the '90s. We were often told by Philippine forces, that the Philippine Cobra did indeed exist on Negros. To include Dumaguete. So when we stepped out at night into a landing zome, to be extra careful.

    Probably cheaper to buy one of our Belgian Malinois pups.

    Doubt metal tools would cure your "little" problem.
