The Russel's Viper which didn't move

Some time back, we found a Russel's Viper just outside our front verandah.

When we tired to chase it away, it just coiled up and kept hissing. it didn't go even when we poured half a litre of water on it!

Comet was visiting at that time, and he was tied near the cowshed. When he heard Bagli's barking, he broke his collar and ran just past the snake, not even noticing it, to the front verandah!

Finally, Appa read out a story (from The Daydreamer - he usually reads out to us at night), and then, at around 10:15, the Russel's viper slowly started going away. It went towards the lemon bush and vanished.
