Default Snake Catcher......................African Style

Python catcher in Africa .
First we wrap our arm in
a skin for protection.

Then we crawl in the pit

We use modern lighting.

There it is.

Those must be eggs.

I let it take my protected arm. Sort of like noodling for fish

Then my buddy pulls me out with snake attached.

Ain't it a beaut?

Crawling head first down a claustrophobic tunnel with a large Rock Python at the end of it ready to clamp onto your face... that bloke must have great big brass ones!
