As South Africans, we are definitely not unfamiliar with snakes. 

And as the summer season comes into full effect, we are becoming more and more wary of snakes paying us a visit.

A video that shows this and a little more didn't seem to surprise anyone who watched on. 

In the video, we see a cobra slide onto the golf course. It was sliding in like a boss and didn't quite seem phased by the fact that people were nearby.

What appears to have happened, is that the cobra and a mongoose got into an altercation, which worked the snake up a bit.

"That cobra 🐍 is running away from that Mongoose at the back."

"This video made me realise I underestimated the size of a fully grown cobra lol."

"Yeah you don’t notice, but this is actually a cobra running for its life from a mongoose. Look in the background. Africa don’t play." 

"Being from Florida golfing with a Gator is cool but a king Cobra & Mongoose is a whole different level."
