In other news, Briefly News reported that Nick Evans took to social media to share that he caught two black mambas on the same spot in Shongweni a few days apart. The snake rescuer caught the first snake on 5 November and rescued the second one on 16 November.

He said he removed the first snake from the roof of a duck enclosure and also caught the other a day ago in the exact same place. Both the male black mambas were the same size. Nick shared the pics of his latest experience on Facebook. Part of his caption reads:

"What was also surprising, is they were the same size. Same weight, same length (well, a 2cm difference), but they were around the 2.2m mark. NO! They definitely weren't the same snake."

He added that the snakes hideout was safe with lots of rats.
