African Rock Python

This snake was ca. 3m long.

I was not just laying in front of it, but I was down on my knees to get htis perspective. This shot is a little bit cropped, as the reptile was about 4 m away from me sneaking up a termite mount towards me.

As you may imagine, this was one of the most exciting moments in my life. I know that they are not very dangerous, but do they know that?
