Dannhauser tells the story at Latestsightings.com: “We were on our way back to camp after our evening drive when suddenly we saw something on the road.”

“At first we saw the snake, which is a Mozambique spitting cobra, so we approached very slowly. Then we spotted the skink – we knew we were going to spring into action.

“The snake spent some time observing its prey, perhaps analyzing how it was going to hunt. But, after careful consideration, he went for the bite. In no time he was victorious, the paralyzing venom was too strong for the skink’s body and he couldn’t get away, although he tried!”

“Once the skink was paralyzed, the snake began to swallow it whole. And, after just a few minutes, the cobra had swallowed the whole skink and was happy to disappear into the tall grass.

“The bush always has something special to offer and after 50 years of experience in the bush it still surprises me!”
