Nick disclosed that as the dog stepped out, she noticed something flick up, just behind the pup. It turned out to be a black mamba.

“Thankfully, the pup avoided a bite. Unlike the others I've been catching of late, it's a juvenile. It would have hatched in around February or early March. Once they've hatched, juvenile snakes disperse, and mothers aren't around to protect them,” said Evans.

In a separate story, Briefly News reported that KZN snake rescuer Nick Evans was called to the Yellowwood Park, Durban area to catch a sneaky black mamba that had slithered its way into a bedroom.

When he arrived at the home, Nick shared that the room full of all sorts of things making the rescue an absolute nightmare to search in.

“As I explained to the homeowner, I could see why the potential mamba came into this room. The window was left open over the weekend, so it likely came in then. There was also no light. Luckily I had my JETBeam South Africa torch handy,” shared Evans in a Facebook post.
