Nick Evans, Durban's beloved snake rescuer, has shared an amusing story online about a series of unlucky events and his post is garnering major attention with over 500 reactions, close to 150 likes and almost 40 shares.
Two days ago, Nick almost caught four venomous snakes on one road in the suburb of Westville, but the sneaky reptiles managed to slip away back into their surroundings and left him without any catches.
First, he received separate two calls involving two Mozambique spitting cobras - one snake was said to hiding under a patio and the other was by a garage entrance. In both cases, the cobras slithered away.
While chatting to a resident in the area, Nick then received a call about another spitting cobra, however, it was hiding between a number of rocks and although he could hear it hissing, catching it would've been risky because of the peculiar location.

His final almost-catch was a black mamba which slithered away into nearby bushes before Nick could get his hands on it. In the post, he said that all these calls were made within two hours of each other and it was an "absolutely incredible" experience.

"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.
