David Attenborough Narrates Film Showing Large Python Eating Entire Deer
When watching a BBC (British Braodcasting Corporation) documentary, nothing makes it sound more interesting, than hearing it narrated by Sir David Attenborough. In the 4 minute video below, Attenborough focuses on cold-blooded reptiles, snakes in particular. While some people have a terrible fear of snakes, it seems that every time I publish an article about them, it almost goes viral. Seeing a snake, especially a LARGE snake like the African Rock Python, kill and eat a large animal is somehow fascinating to people.
The African rock python is a large, nonvenomous snake of sub-Saharan Africa. It is one of 11 living species in the genus Python. It has two subspecies; one is found in Central and Western Africa, the other in Southern Africa.Africa’s largest snake and one of the six largest snake species in the world (along with the green anaconda, reticulated python, Burmese python, Indian python, and amethystine python), specimens may approach or exceed 20 ft. The southern subspecies is generally smaller than its northern relative. The snake is found in a variety of habitats, from forests to near deserts, although usually near sources of water.The African rock python kills its prey by constriction and often eats animals up to the size of antelope, occasionally even crocodiles. The snake reproduces by egg-laying. Unlike most snakes, the female protects her nest and sometimes even her hatchlings. The snake is widely feared, though it very rarely kills humans. Although the snake is not endangered, it does face threats from habitat reduction and hunting.
