I have to admit that I watched this video like 3 times to even believe it…WHAT IS HAPPENING???
And I am no fan of snakes which makes this even harder to believe.
A girl sitting on a sunny day on a blanket…
In a moment of absolute bravery, or sheer stupidity, this South African girl sees a cobra come charging toward her, reaches out, and catches it mid flight!
When she was a younger girl, this woman would go snake catching with her brothers. Even then she showed no fear about catching often deadly snakes, and releasing them again.
Still, after a day of sunning and hanging out with her brothers by the pond, the last thing this girl could have imagined was a cobra flying toward her.
Turns out, the cobra was attached to a fishing string, and her brothers were simply trying to play a prank on her. Take a look!
Girl Catches Cobra Video
Talk about lightening reflexes!
I’m sure her siblings were expecting a scream, but instead they saw that not only does she not backdown, she’s unflappable in the face of danger.
Maybe instead of a prank, they should nominate her to be their town’s superhero.
