“I’ve been bitten by a rain spider. No burn, no itch, just two little mozzie bite dots that disappeared in about 20 minutes. Although all spiders (except feather-legged spiders) are venomous, there are only four in SA that are medically significant to humans - brown and black button spiders, violin spiders and six-eyed sand spiders.”

“I often see spiders and I don't mind them, but the snakes, hai I don't know what can happen.”

“I wouldn’t care where I was I would be out of that car in a shot and then not get back into it until it and its friends, because I guarantee there is more than one, have been removed totally. Big spiders give me the heebie jeebies.”

“I had one on my windshield coming out of nowhere walking over on driver side. It was before 6am. It was still dark. And I freaked out. After I stopped I only then made sure I was the only driver in that lane. I used the wipers to get rid of it.”

Nick Evans shares how a teen was rudely woken up by a big mamba in his room
In a story of snakes, Briefly News previously reported that another South African snake catcher, Nick Evans, who is also known as 'The Snake Man', recently shared a hair-raising story about how he was called to rescue a young guy after a large black mamba slithered into his room.
"On Friday afternoon, I received a call from a panicked young man who said that a long, thick, black snake had slithered into his bedroom, in the Welbedacht area.
"According to him, he was having an afternoon nap when he was awoken by the sound of things being knocked over on the floor of his bedroom. He sat up, looked down, and there was this black mamba, making its way into his room," his post read.
