Video shows snake crossing the road in Zimbali
A video posted on TikTok shows the snake, suspected to be a python, slowly slithering across the road as a car waits for it to pass. Zimbali is in a tropical coastal setting on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal, which makes it ideal for several species of snakes.
According to KZN Snake rescuer, Nick Evans who spoke to Briefly News, the north coast is quite an ideal habitat for pythons.
"With its mixture of habitats, such as coastal forests, wetlands, riverine systems, and slightly further west, more open, grassland-type habitats. They are often seen all around the region. The warm climate favours them too," Evans said.
According to AZ Animals, pythons are normally not dangerous to humans since they do not deliver deadly venom. There are only two potential risks of hazard from pythons – getting bitten by their razor-sharp teeth and getting constricted.
South Africans react to video with witty comments
Several netizens did not pass on the opportunity to respond with funny and sarcastic comments.
"Engabe yeqe kuyiph room nkocyam."
"Wait, so in Zimbali, they just let snakes be, but what if… yoh aaai."
"Ay, Zimbali got plenty of Pythons."
Plumbers R Us replied:
"There's bigger ones in the government."
Itz Keah said:
"Only on TV do snakes move quickly."
"Yoh what is my ex doing here."
"Going to collect money for someone."
19-foot python wrestles with man and loses
In more snake news, Briefly News previously reported that a man wrestled a python almost 6 meters long to the ground in a brawl that would send shivers down anyone afraid of snakes.
The man's match with the gigantic snake almost ended in tears as, as some pointed, it tried wrapping itself around him.
@gladesboys recorded the man trying to take the giant snake on his own. The video shows the man trying to grab the python by its tail. He struggles with it for a moment, and it suddenly lunges at him with its mouth open.
