"Snake City"
Season Premiere Friday, September 14 at 9 PM ET on Nat Geo WILD

          The tropical city of Durban has beaches, babes and hundreds of venomous snakes. Simon Keys is not your usual snake handler. After growing up in the hard streets of London, he didn’t have to deal with much wildlife, but now that he lives in South Africa - things have changed. His job is to hunt down the world’s most dangerous snakes, but they’re not in the wild - they are in his city.
          On the September 14 season premiere, “Snake City: Storm of Snakes,” Simon and Siouxsie brave a tropical storm to rescue a black mamba – one slip and they’re dead! A baby spitting cobra launches a sneaky attack on Siouxsie and almost blinds her, while a massive spitter and a tiny dog come into deadly confrontation. A green mamba takes the whole crew to new heights, and Simon and Siouxsie play ‘pass the python’ in creepy crawly heaven.
         Then on the September 21 at 9 PM, “Snake City: Hot & Bothered,” a huge black mamba is trapped inside a dark, cramped roof and Simon has to poke his head into dark holes to find it - risking a bite to the head! A man calls about mating whip snakes in his garden, but they end up returning to the same house three times to catch four different snakes!

          On the September 28 at 9 PM, “Snake City: Mamba Mama,” a black mamba is trapped inside a couch in a tiny room with Simon and Siouxsie just inches away from being bitten at any time! Simon has his hands full when he realizes a green mamba he’s about to rescue is heavily pregnant. A spitting cobra proves elusive, and they discover a black mamba that’s been sharing a bedroom with a man for what could possibly have been days!
