Snake rescuer Nick Evans says that he is having a busy "mamba summer". Evans had to rescue three black mambas in various parts of KZN, all in one day! He started off in the Reservoir Hills area before having to make his way to the suburb of Westville.
He ended his day off by rescuing a fully fed mamba in the small community of Mount Moreland. The last catch of the day involved Evans making his way into a pigeon loft where the black mamba had already feasted on three chicks.
He shared that the owner of the property spotted the serpent as it slithered through his legs. Evans shared that this is proof that black mambas' instincts' do not involve biting a human unless they are given no choice in the matter.

5 Mambas in 1 day: Snake catcher, Nick Evans, breaks personal record and risks life and limb
Previously, Briefly News reported that Nick Evans has had a busy day in which he broke his personal best for catching snakes in a single day. He bagged five black mambas in one day.
The first one was stuck under a wendy house and was difficult to get out, bearing in mind this is a deadly reptile and the smallest mistake could be fatal. The second snake catching request came while he was busy trying to wrestle the mamba out from under the wendy house. Fortunately, it was literally across the road.
This snake was in a bathroom, when he opened the bathroom door he was immediately confronted by the snake. He was quite shocked that there were two snakes so close together. However, his day was about to get a lot busier. The third black mamba was in a tree and was very difficult and dangerous to get to.
