This short account details the first photographic evidence of death-feigning in a juvenile Naja mossambica Peters, 1854 (Naja (Afronaja) mossambica Peters, 1854) from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, accompanied by figures displaying threat posture and death-feigning. Records of this behaviour in other species, including photographs, are considered and referenced.
