Nick Evans recently headed online to share another post about one of his amazing snake catches. According to the post he had gotten a call from a frightened family who spotted the snake in a doorway in their home.
"Last night, a family in Westville North, got quite a fright when they saw this Mozambique Spitting Cobra at their doorway! Instinctively, the one resident grabbed the door and shut it, while the snake moved to the side, slithering behind a fridge. They phoned me, and kept eyes on it. It was trapped in a room.
"I didn't know what it was in advance, so when I moved the fridge back and saw that brown, pattern-less body, I knew I needed to run back to my car and grab by visor! It was a fairly straightforward catch.
"I pulled it out, while the family watched in disbelief through the glass door. They got a safe, close-up view. The cobra was nearly a meter long. Once I put it in the bucket, it started to regurgitate," he wrote.
Locals had this to say:
Carolina Van Heerden said:
"Thanks, Nick for the info it's great seeing all your adventures keep safe and God bless"
Jenny Matthews said:
"Great informative narrative, Nick. This is something that most of us do not get to see, so thank you for the pictures, even though some may find them disturbing. Well done."
