The joys of living in Durban, a night adder visits The Ofori home.

If there's one thing we know about Carol Ofori, it's the fact that she doesn't enjoy snakes. 

Unlike many other enthusiasts, Carol Ofori would run the other way if she ever came into contact with a snake. 

And just like that, a snake decided to visit her humble abode. While Carol Ofori was away, her husband sent her a video and best believe it wasn't one of the kids fooling around. 

In the video, we see a retaining wall, it doesn't look like anything but then as the camera zooms in closer, we see the slitherer. 

According to Mr. Ofori the snake was in pursuit of a frog and it was a game of cat and mouse (without the cat or the mouse). 

Apparently, this pursuit went on around two hours before he stopped taking notice of it all. And of course, our daytime Queen was not around to witness all of this.
