- A scary video revealed how a snake catcher came face-to-face with a massive boomslang
- The large reptile was found in a home in Reservoir Hills, KwaZulu-Natal
- The snake-catcher saved the day by nabbing the boomslang, but calmly caught it all on camera
KwaZulu-Natal is a province known for many things - beautiful forests, beautiful beaches and lots of reptiles.
Recently, Briefly.co.za reported on a four-metre long python that was captured in the plush KZN eco-estate of Zimbali.
This time, the suburb of Reservoir Hills in Durban came to the fore when a very large boomslang was found at a home.
The Universal Reptiles Facebook group shared an interesting video, which details how snake catcher Jason Arnold captured the lengthy beast.
Jason was so composed that he casually filmed the snake while staring at it directly.
Upon his arrival at the residence, Jason found the reptile at the bathroom window, in close proximity to a bird's nest.
The snake then ventured into the bathroom, but slithered towards the bath when it sensed danger.
Jason eventually caught the huge boomslang, ensuring the safety of the homeowners, the snake and birds as well.
Social media users were impressed by Jason's skills and lauded him for his heroic deeds.
Eltina Stenhouse praised everyone involved:
"Well done Jason and also home owners for knowing to do right thing and who to call."
Nirasha Hunsraj watched the video in disbelief:
"Frikkin hell - that's one long boomslang."
Angie Bullock commented on the tense nature of the video:
"Love the video but hell you know who to keep one on the edge of their seat."
