A local farmer who spotted a large python on his farm is getting all the funny reactions from social media users. According to a post by Owl Rescue Centre, a farmer in the North West province, Hendrik Hanekom, found this big creature.
Hanekom was concerned the crawling creature carried the snake could pounce on his lambs and decided to ask for help. However, what left Mzansi laughing are the two guys involved in transporting the python to the wild.
The guys are filmed as they try to untie the bag which carried a snake and one of them is seen very sacred to untie the bag and even fell on the ground. The group wrote on social media:
“Hendrik Hanekom from Zeerust contacted us yesterday about rescuing this large lady that he found on his farm and was a little concerned that she would fancy one or two of his lambs. But with him living just a short distance from a 4000-hectare nature reserve on the property of a mine it was decided the best thing was for him to release her close to her territory. #Conservationmindedfarming.”

Snake rescuer Nick Evans catches 4 beautiful but lethal vine snakes, details the intriguing experience
In a similar article, Briefly News posted that winter is far behind us and with the toastier days here to stay for the next few months, Durban's snakes are coming out to play.
Popular snake rescuer, Nick Evans, recently posted about a very interesting and tricky situation that led to him rescuing four vine snakes in the area of Wyebank.
In a lengthy Facebook post, he details how he caught the snakes and why this experience is so intriguing to him. In one part of the post, he says:
"Four vine snakes! Incredible! We could not believe it. Although, we were now scanning for more, pushing our luck! No more was seen, though, sadly. We presumed it was three males after a female. However, it turns out that it's two males and two females. They had to be together for mating. The homeowners did describe male combat- two snakes were wrapped around each other as they climbed, then they'd fall. That sounds like combat."
