Johannesburg: South African pacer Dale Steyn ran into a venomous black mamba at Kruger National Park and posted a video on Instagram to caution his followers.
So this poor guy was hit by a car, we stopped to move him out the road thinking it was a brown house snake... Got a little too close and then realized what we were actually dealing with! Mr Black Mamba! This post is not to show how brave we were, it's to show that if you don't know what you dealing with then best you leave it alone! Lesson learnt! #phalaborwa #wildouthere #blackmamba Ok few people saying it could be a Mozambique spitting cobra...? Others I've shown have said mamba... AWESOME- It's confirmed its a Mozambique spitting cobra! Sorry bout the mistake, I blame the mistake on @bretbargiacchi5 Haha! Did ask around before posting what we believed it was, seems my guide @marlondutoit needs to up his snake game... ðÂÂÂ
Steyn wrote that he pulled over to check on what he believed was a brown house snake: "So this poor guy was hit by a car, we stopped to move him out the road thinking it was a brown house snake.
