South Africans have a love-hate relationship with snakes. While many claim to hate them, many seem to find themselves either acting like them, dancing like them or even using them for their supposed secret powers.

Recently an SA celeb alluded to people using snakes as a form of witchcraft to further their own success and suggested that the evil practice is the reason why so many top South Africans are doing so well. This is however not the only snake saga that trended on social media.

A hilarious short clip which was uploaded by Twitter user @TboozeSA shows a grown man slithering on the ground like a snake.

The man seemingly just got out of his BMW, got on the ground and started performing the unusual act while being recorded and watched by local metro officers who were on the scene.

In another strange snake incident, a rather peculiar video of a group of men pulling a large snake out of a bush has made its way onto social media. The 30-second clip was shared to Twitter by @BlackLwendo recently and South Africans are kind-of shook.

Zodwa Wabantu also jumped into the snake mix and took to social media to share a video of herself with a giant snake. The socialite introduced the snake as her MaMlambo. She said the snake is responsible for all her good fortune.

The dancer further joked that her followers should also get themselves a snake for good luck. Zodwa Wabantu has been joking about using muthi and witchcraft ever since she was accused of doing such.

In other Briefly.co.za news about snakes, snake catcher Jason Arnold was called out to a house in the rural area of Osindisweni. He revealed the family spotted a massive two-metre black mamba that hid in their only couch.

The couch had no springs or support and the family had stuffed it with cushions and blankets. Arnold was touched by the poverty the family found themselves in and he did not charge them for his trip.

The snake catcher then shared their story on the Universal Reptiles Facebook page and South Africans showed what Ubuntu meant.
