Mzansi was left shook after a video was posted on social media which showed a young girl dragging around a snake.
The footage showed the little girl walking around with the snake's tail end in her hand. Her older sibling obviously did not share her love for the reptile.
The older girl climbed onto the couch, trying to get away from her lil sister and the slithering serpent.
Social media user Rumani, who goes by the Twitter handle @MrumaDrive, shared the video on Twitter on Wednesday.

Sipho Hlongoane added: "mxm ah it's the family's friend this one, but they did get the attention they wanted at least."
