But in Africa, pythons might kill you. If you cross them. The bush found this out first hand. When he stumbled upon.What he thought was a sleeping policeman in the middle.

On closer inspection, however, the hapless driver spotted that it was an absolutely monstrous giant python. The snake was spotted making its way across the road. Cameron captured an incredible video of the snake slithering away into the bushes . After it had finished blocking the road.

His video shows the dark silhouette of the python stretching of the road. Before it starts to move.  As the camera moves closer in. It reveals the enormous length of the snake’s body. The reptile shuffles its hulking frame closer towards the bushes. Cameron said: ‘I was walking in the bush and came across the snake.

What is the largest python on record?

The largest anaconda ever measured was almost 28 feet long with a girth of 44 inches. She wasn’t weighed at the time. She was caught. But scientists estimate. That she must have weighed over 500 lbs.

‘I then called the kids. So that they could have a look at the specimen. As we have a lot of pythons on the property. I have never seen such a magnificent specimen. ‘The kids had watched the snake move through the bush. I took a video of it crossing the road to show friends.

‘I was impressed to find a specimen that size. As they are a protected species as people often catch them. I sell them for pets hence the dwindling numbers. ‘To see a specimen like that for yourself in the bush is something quiet special. ‘Most people are amazed at the size of it and the fact that. We still get some in the wild that size is really special.’
