My new squeeze :-P
Don't miss tonight's episode on @natgeowild at 10PM. We find a spitting cobra in an air conditioning unit and even have to call the fire brigade for some help with a green mamba!

Spitting cobras are pretty much my worst nightmare! Although they are incredible snakes, I am highly allergic to their venom, and considering they can spit it at my face with remarkable accuracy, I have to keep my distance!

In this week's episode of #SnakeCity, we save an injured cobra from a home, and then receive a call about a black mamba that has eaten two kittens.

Don't miss it! Sunday at 10PM on @natgeowild (US only).

US fans, only one day to go before a new episode airs! This week we have to use a trap to capture a forest cobra that had been terrorizing a trailer park.

All NEW episodes of #SnakeCity on Sundays at 10PM on Nat Geo WILD (US only).

This part of a snake capture always gets the blood pumping! We don't often use gloves when handling snakes as we find that they can get in the way and actually make it harder for us to to get a grip on a venomous snake, but sometimes it's unavoidable.
This black mamba was captured on the last season of #SnakeCity. Identifiable from its coffin-shaped head and olive-green colouration, the species is actually named for the inky black colouration on the inside of its mouth (which you can see nicely in this pic!)
All NEW episodes of #SnakeCity on Sundays at 9/8c on @natgeowild (US only).

We catch a LOT of these little guys. A common visitor in residential gardens in South Africa (particularly in KwaZulu-Natal), the spotted bush snake, or variegated green snake, sports bright green skin peppered with black speckles. Often active during the day, these tree-dwelling constrictors are sometimes confused with venomous green mambas, but their black spots, slim bodies and the light-brown rings around their eyes set them apart from their deadlier cousins.
