South Africans, however, could not believe that anyone would pay half a million rand for a goat! Check out some of the stunned reactions below:

"No ways": SA YouTuber spends 5 nights with 16 snakes, Mzansi freaked out
In more animal news, Briefly News previously reported that South African YouTuber Dingo Dinkelman has social media abuzz after conducting one very interesting conservation experiment involving 16 snakes. The nature-enthusiast wanted to show his global audience that deadly reptiles are much friendlier than they're usually portrayed, locking himself in a 6x2 'cage of death' with the animals.
He spent an incredible five nights locked in the cage.
Heading to their official Facebook account, @news24 shared the amazing story.
“It was an incredible experience and a successful series. I really think we achieved what we set out to do: show that these animals don’t intend us any harm if left alone. There’s absolutely no reason to kill them," Dinkelman told TimesLive.
Local social media users could not believe their eyes. One person humorously remarked that Dingo knew nothing of spending a night with deadly reptiles as he had not yet met his ex-girlfriend.

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."

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