 Cobalt is a Vietnamese Blue Beauty native to the Vietnam-Thailand-Burma areas of Southeast Asia.  When I interviewed him on May 14, 2010, he was living with Francis, who had raised him from 6 weeks of age. 

Shortly after the interview, Cobalt moved to a new home with another man and his family.  I have wanted to contact that person, but have not been able to do so at the time I am writing this. 

Even though I may or may not be able to get current information about Cobalt’s new home, I had such a powerful experience speaking with him that I decided to keep him in the TWA_OPG program anyway.  When you speak with him and ask about his life purpose and personal goals, you will understand more about why I wanted you all to meet him.


Questions to ask Cobalt:

As you are working with Cobalt, describe how his energy feels to you.  Consider the ways his energy is similar or different from the energy of other types of animals, and the ways it is similar or different from the energy of other snakes you might have spoken with in the past.

  2. How do you feel about being picked up and handled by humans? 
    1. Has this always been the way you felt about it, or have your feelings changed over time?
  3. How did Francis teach you to accept human contact?
  4. Which do you like more, being held by a human or being able to explore?  Please describe how each one feels to you so I understand your perspective.
  5. How does it feel to you when you sense that a human is afraid of your or of snakes in general?
