MAMBA PAIR IN BEDROOM CUPBOARD!

This is the last place many of you would want to see a Black Mamba, let alone two!
At the beginning of July, I was called out to help this family in the Mphephetheni area of Inanda (a fairly rural area west of Durban- South Africa).
Fortunately, the family had seen the snake enter the cupboard from a distance, rather than open up and get a fright!
They had seen the snake at midnight, and luckily for them, the neighbour said that they could spend the remainder of the night in his house. I was there at first light.
PLEASE NOTE: These mambas slithered into the house without biting anyone. In fact, the homeowner suspected they had been in the house hours before he saw them. So these snakes had plenty of time to attack and kill the residents, but they didn't. Because that's not what mambas do. Instead, they did what they usually do, shy away and hide!
I suspect that the mating pair entered the home to find some warmth. It was freezing outside!
