“There was great habitat for this rescued black mamba on the other side of the river, but crossing it for me was difficult. Not for the snake. You can see how high the river was days prior to this,” he wrote on a Facebook post.

Judging by the comments, a few South African online users were left spooked by this fact about snakes, especially dangerous ones such as the black mamba.

Liz Woest shared:

“Yes, they are. As a child, I was with my parents at the sea, and there was a snake swimming alongside my dad in the water. If I recall correctly it was in Hiberdene.”

Phil Hair said:

“I have seen snakes in rivers! Scary, but they don't concern themselves with you in the water.”

Michael Ovayo Sokomane responded:

“God wouldn't be the only one to walk on water if I saw that coming towards me but I'd run.”

Deirdre Capell commented:

“Oh, my hat looks like a full flood river near me. I think Nick should run fear factor courses for people who have fear phobias about snakes. I have never even touched one and I would rather face an elephant. Phobic fears are terrible and extend to even geckos for me.”
