“Well done Nick”: These are the words echoed by many South African social media users who are impressed by Nick Evans. Evans is a well-known snake rescuer and he just had the daunting task of catching a black mamba.
Evans says his mission was made difficult by resilient ants who kept disturbing him as he tried by all means to catch the crawling creature hidden under a rock. The Durban-based man says a Westville father was playing soccer with his son when he spotted the dangerous serpent. He wrote:
“Having ants crawl all over you, and bite you, while you're looking for and catching a black mamba, isn't the best, but it's what we had to deal with on this call recently! A father had gone down to the bottom of his Dawncliffe, Westville garden to fetch his son's ball. He wasn't able to fetch it and continue their game, because the ball had stopped right next to a basking black mamba!
“Yes yes, I know, some of you are going to be saying, 'Why were you wearing slops?' Well, I was in a shop when I got the call. I don't walk around in boots. Also, the description I got, of the situation, didn't sound like boots were needed!”
