Winter is far behind us and with the toastier days here to stay for the next few months, Durban's snakes are coming out to play. Popular snake rescuer, Nick Evans, recently posted about a very interesting and tricky situation which led to him rescuing four vine snakes in the area of Wyebank.
In a lengthy Facebook post, he details how he caught the snakes and why this experience is so intriguing to him.
In one part of the post, he says:
"Four vine snakes! Incredible! We could not believe it. Although, we were now scanning for more, pushing our luck! No more were seen, though, sadly.
"We presumed it was three males after a female. However, it turns out that it's two males and two females. They had to be together for mating. The homeowners did describe male combat- two snakes were wrapped around each other as they climbed, then they'd fall. That sounds like combat."

"Yesterday afternoon, in Reservoir Hills (Durban), a family were in the kitchen going about their day, when they suddenly heard a noise at the front door. They looked up, and saw a massive Black Mamba entering the house. I'd imagine this is a worst nightmare for many people," he wrote.
He then went on to explain how after contemplating hitting the snake with a chair, the dad decided that the best thing to do was call Nick who arrived shortly to find that the snake had slithered further into the scared family's home.
