Hi Guys


I hope you are all doing well.


Check out my new video. I dodged a monster Puff adder and caught my PB Red Roman.


Let me know what you think.


Cheers

Hi there. We had an incident with a puff adder in Witsand a few years ago. We were staying in a block of flats on the beach front. We had the front door open, my one son was sitting close to the door. I happened to look down and saw a puff adder inside the lounge about a meter inside and ready to strike. I told my son to move slowly away, but when he saw the snake he almost flew over the table he was sitting at. Luckily my two little dogs were in the kitchen at the time, otherwise they would have attacked. I took a broom and shoved the snake out over the stoep and back into the bush. It wasn't long when the snake came crawling back onto the stoep. This time I decided enough is enough and killed it. I know this is cruel but but rather it than me or my family or dogs.
