Info from Licensor: "My three year old and I had just walked down the garden steps, and my mom followed shortly after. I was in the kitchen and heard a shout. My mom was trapped between the gate and a night adder which was in full strike mode and hissing aggressively. I shouted from the door for her to reverse. She stood dead still, and the snake seemed to relax slightly; so she made her move and reversed as quickly as she could. From there, the snake was clearly on a mission. I watched her disappear and tried to keep watch as I rang the snake conservation park to send someone to remove her. I kept watching the last spot I saw her. Then she suddenly emerged between the rocks at my feet. Two frogs emerged and hopped frantically away, but the snake stayed put. Finally, a third frog hopped out, and the snake chased it, almost going over my feet. When I realized she was on the hunt and not at all interested in me, I quickly put my phone on video and followed her."
