Puff Adder Removal Video
This puff adder was caught in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, and released on Signal Hill.
The snake had made the wooden deck in the video its home. Everyday it would exit from underneath the stairs and sun itself on the tiles. The resident noticed the snake when it was about 20cm from his foot.
Initially we had hoped to capture the snake while it was charging its solar batteries but it was quick to retreat at the first sign of movement. Plan B – dismantle the wooden deck and haul it out.
