Man Stops To Check Under The Hood Of His Truck…& GETS THE FRIGHT OF HIS LIFE
While driving down a dirt road in Zimbabwe Africa, a man sensed there was something wrong with his pick-up truck, so he stopped on the side of the road to check it out…that’s common enough right ? So, he pulls-over and turns-off his motor, walks around the the front of his rig and opens the hood. Exactly what he saw, initially scared the crap out of him, because coiled-up on the passenger side of the engine, was a HUGE African Rock Python. And when I say “huge”, I mean HUGE !!
This bad-boy had to be anywhere from 6 to 9 feet long and was almost as thick as a grown man’s thigh muscle. As the man and his friend grabbed the huge snakes head, he came to realize just how big it really was. The reptile managed to coil itself between the lower and upper half of the trucks engine, which made getting it out, all the more difficult. Finally, after what seemed an eternity, the men got the snake out from under the hood, walked over to some brush on the side of the roar and very cautiously, released the animal.
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 and 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.
