AFRICAN ROCK PYTHON
On the night we arrived at our lodge, a juvenile African Rock Python was accidentally trapped under the electric fence surrounding the lodge. It was repeatedly electrocuted until one of the rangers rescued it. After nursing it back to health, and keeping it warm through the night, the dazed python was released the next afternoon, and we were invited to film it. Tony was sent to crouch down within a metre of the snake. Tony had to get it right first time, which he did brilliantly. Although he does look slightly uncomfortable when the rock python starts to move towards him.
