Cape Cobra Raids a Nest ----then falls

Cape Cobra Raids a Nest ----then falls. We watched this cobra raid a nest and then fall and it did not move...probably concussed for few minutes. Lesson to be learned is if you see such a sighting do not park under the tree!

I agree

I would agree with Irvin but go one further and say if you have a sun roof, keep it closed if you park under a tree anywhere in the bush. My husband and I were in the kruger some years back and needed some shade at a water whole so we parked under a big bush, but as we pulled off we saw this huge spider running down our windscreen, well it was a mad rush to put up all the windows just in case it wanted to venture inside.
