While most of us scream in fright even if we so much as spot a a lizard on the wall or a cockroach on the floor, a home owner in Durban, South Africa, had a tougher task at hand. A video uploaded by National Geographic, shows a black mamba, considered one of the deadliest snakes in the world, hiding underneath her television console.

Yes, indeed.

The homeowner has many pets including hamsters and rabbits, which is probably what attracted the black mamba to the house in the first place. It is said that one bite from the venomous snake is fatal, unless it is immediately treated with an anti-venom. Thankfully, the woman called an expert for help.

Nick Evans, of KwaZulu Natal Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, who educates people about amphibians, is finally able to catch the tricky snake – which turns out to be as long as 8ft – after much trouble. According to the video, the snake was tagged and then released into a reserve.
