Nick Evans to the rescue as hungry mamba sniffs out pet birds

Black Mambas do enjoy a bird or two for lunch. When this mamba sniffed out caged parakeets, it couldn't resist popping in for a meal. However, it all went wrong for the snake. Not only did it not catch a meal, but it managed to get itself stuck! This was quite a challenging and stressful rescue for Nick Evans!

*Multiple birds were kept in multiple properties bordering a valley (mamba habitat). A mamba visitor was inevitable. Please don't panic if you have a pet bird, especially if you do not live on a property bordering a reserve or valley, as the chance of a mamba coming for it is slim.
