My friend Lucius Moolman with wife Annake and grandchildren visit the Karoo National Park in Beaufort West.
A coral snake then provided a unique and bitterly interesting spectacle, on their veranda, when he grabbed a lizard right there and swallowed it.
This cobra, like all the other species found in South Africa, is extremely dangerous and should not be disturbed.
The poison is virulent neurotoxic, and can cause great harm. Also death.
They like rocky areas and sandy soil, usually hunting for dark, but become active when it rains.
