Vatsonga Ngoveni said:

"I remember in 1996, I was chased by Black Mamba, I was too close to eggs and were about to hatch. Out of nowhere, I see Black Mamba coming straight at me. Usain Bolt would have come second. Since that day, every time I see a snake it's a war."

Russ Goals said:

"I am sure he applied medicine on himself to make them feel like not biting cause a snake is a snake... No ways"

Alec Stafford said:

"To be honest, it is a well-known fact most snakes will only attack if they feel threatened, so in general, if you see a snake, and it is not posing a risk to you or anyone else around you, let it be. It will move away as quickly as possible. If not, get a snake catcher to relocate it. They are vital parts of the ecosystem."

Farrell Sibongiseni Shusha said:

"Keep the reptiles for a few weeks without feeding and get inside the cage and lock for about 5-10 minutes then come back and tell us what happened."

Jay Tee said:

"Next time please spend a year with them you might turn into a marvel superhero."

The 25-year-old was fortunate because she is used to the creatures as she works as a wildlife rescuer, and managed to return it to the wild. The BBC has it that the woman was looking to select her item when the snake poked out from a shelf at a Woolworths store.

The publication further indicates that Alati tapped the snake on the tail before taking a snake bag and dispatched the creature from the shop. BBC News reports:

"She retrieved a snake bag from her home, returned to the store, tapped him on the tail and he just slithered in. She then released him away from houses in bushland - a natural habitat for the species around Sydney."
