A reptile specialist had to remove an unexpected object from a car.

A deadly snake had hidden under the bonnet to escape from people, in Durban, South Africa. The driver was trapped inside, fearing it would bite him, as the black mamba’s venom can kill a human in just 20 minutes.

It’s not known how long the man was in his car for, but he eventually opened the door and ran out.

Jason Arnold, who works at Universal Reptiles, towed the car away to a quiet area. He then opened the bonnet and released the 7ft snake, out of harm’s way, into the countryside, reported the Mirror.
