Lesly Meyer said:

“There seems to be an abundance of mambas this year. Is there an increase in numbers or are we just being made more aware on a regular basis?”

Nick Evans- Snake Rescuer gave a thorough answer:

“Lesly Meyer hard to say if there's an increase. Perhaps. It is something I'm trying to figure out for sure through research. But Durban has many greenbelts/reserves/valleys. Good habitat with decent supply of natural food. Also, lots of House Rats, and feral cats (they'll eat kittens). Also, 4 million people +-, so many, many eyes. The green belts I mention are all very restricted, surrounded by homes.”

Lesly Meyer said:

“Nick Evans- Snake Rescuer Thanks Nick. Keep up your excellent work. Looking forward to your next TV show. I learnt so much from watching …”

Durban-based snake rescuer Nick Evans has caught one more black mamba but describes his latest catch as harrowing.

"I've been trying to catch two black mambas living in a garden refuse pile at a complex in Queensburgh. They'd been there for a few weeks but no one was happy about it. Fair enough."

Evans said he attempted to catch the snakes last week.

“I arrived and started approaching slowly. I got closer and closer, and my heart rate went up. ‘Is this the time I catch one?’ I was thinking, not quite believing my luck. I was right on top of it, reached down with the tongs, and grabbed it!”

He said the snake went “ballistic” when he grabbed it.
