Nick took to his Facebook page to share the tales of his busy black mamba day. Highlighting that the snakes seemed a little out of character, the only thing Nick could put it down to was the floods.

“Interestingly, all were in pretty strange places, away from nature reserves. Was it because of the floods? Perhaps, I'm not sure.”

All three black mambas were caught in the Pinetown area. While the snakes were “well-fed”, they were super sassy and Nick had his hands full. Having turned his head to see the deadly snake's body right by him, Nick’s blood pressure shot through the roof.

“For some reason, I stepped back, and out of the corner of my eye, spotted the mamba's body right near my head, between the roof and the wall. Needless to say, I got a big fright!”

Hermi Avenant Wildenboer said:

“This is like reading action/comedy/horror! Action - ‘feisty’ - if YOU call a snake feisty I’m running for the hills! Comedy - ‘which no-one was keen to hold for me’ - I can just imagine! Horror - ‘mamba’s body right near my head’. No explanation necessary."

Carolina Van Heerden said:

“Well, well, you must've been chuffed with you catch of the day. As always, great to read about you and your experiences, keep safe and God bless.”

Snake rescuer Nick Evans details catching "little" 1.8m black mamba: "that snake is bigger than me"

In other snake catcher news, Briefly New previously reported that Nick Evans, a snake rescuer in South Africa, rescued a mamba in Westville, Durban, just off the M19. Evans shared the chilling details of the rescue on his Facebook page and South Africans are glad that they were nowhere near the place.

The mamba was found in an abandoned home hiding in a box filled with various items from previous owners. The biggest concern for Evans was the possibility of multiple snakes being in the box, a concern that he highlighted in the Facebook post.

Attached to the post is a picture of the 1.8-metre snake being held by Evans.
