Speaking to Briefly News, Luke Kemp from African Snakebite Insitute clarified that snakes are not actually jumping but are falling off. He said:
"Snakes don't really jump, they may drop out of trees or off rocks into water if they need to get down rapidly."
In South Africa, a snake that can 'jump' is the forest cobra as reported by National Geographic. Mr Kemp from African Snakebite Institute also added that snakes like Boomslang and Green or Black Mambas crossing roads get a fright from an oncoming car and turn at speed, often launching for the side of the road, but rarely lift the entire body off the ground. He added that some snake may lift their bodies while striking straight up.
