The snake in this picture had eaten a full grown Impala ewe and, sadly, caught itself in an electric fence.The African Rock Python is identified as the third largest species of snake in the world.
Over four metres in length, this was a large specimen. When the python was skinned we found a full grown Impala ewe had just been swallowed.
