With the gentlest of rustles a snake rose high up above the grass and faced me, about a meter or so away. I wasn’t quite sure about this unexpected visitation but I was so transfixed by the stillness and compelling beauty  of the brown mamba, with its olive brown scales glistening in the warm Zambian sun and its piercing dark round eyes, closing watching my every move.

I was transfixed, I could hear my parents talking in the clearing beyond the trees but strangely I was unafraid. It seemed to be curious closely watching my every move. Something told me not to move too fast and instead play a little by slowly sway sideways. The snake did the same mirroring my movements. It never blinked just kept watching intently, being only 7-years-old I didn’t know much about snake physiology but what I did know was that they were highly poisonous. It seemed like a time had ceased and there was just me and this beautiful creature cocooned in enrapt intent. And as suddenly as it started it ended when my brother came into view and snake swiftly departed.
