Getting facts from the snake professionals

Briefly News spoke to Ralph Riggens from Ultimate Exotics to find out if this is normal for a Cape Cobra. This is what he said:

“Cape cobras have a large distribution range, extending across the Western, Northern and Eastern Cape, they are found mostly in arid, rocky regions so it is rather unusual to find one swimming in the ocean, hopefully, the lost Cape cobra found his way home ”
