A woman from South Africa was left in complete shock after she found a black mamba, the world’s deadliest snake, slithering around in her property.
The woman, who was not named, called a snake expert, who later admitted that he was scared while trying to catch the snake.
Nick Evans, a snake expert from Durban, South Africa, caught the snake after he was called to the property on March 18, 2021.
For those that have no idea, the black mamba is considered by many as the world’s deadliest snake.
This snake is so deadly that you can die 6 hours after it bites you.
Its venom is so lethal that death occurs within 6 hours after the bite.
Images that were shared by Nick shows him grappling with the serpent.
Nick said that he laughed in joy after he pulled the snake out from its hiding place.
Talking about the incident, Nick said:
A homeowner in the Bellair area called me after spotting the black mamba on her CCTV camera. The footage shows the 2.6-metre long snake near two roosters, but neither of them was scared. I think the snake was there for a while, eating rats in the chicken coop. This was one of my most thrilling rescues in a while, with a few laughable moments afterwards. I was scared while I was trying to catch the snake, but adrenaline was pumping and it was really challenging. I got a fright when an electric fence shocked me and my friend and research partner Dr Cormac Price, who was with me, thought I was been bitten by the snake.
Talking about the black mamba, Nick said that they are his favorite type of snake, despite the fact that they could kill you.
He said this type of snake does have a pretty bad reputation, however, they are just scared of people.
