While driving around the Kruger National Park in South Africa, you’re likely to come across some pretty rare and ridiculous sights, typically of the exotic animal variety. Take this giant python, for example. This ain’t the sort of thing you’re likely to see in America. At least not out and about.
Back in 2013, a whole group of folks on an safari stopped to get out of their cars and get a closer look at the beast, and while they were doing this, the massive snake noticed a warm engine block and decided to crawl inside of it to hang out for a little bit. When this happens, all you can do is sit and wait for it to leave, which is exactly what these would-be snake watchers did.
Per Kruger Sightings:
Car stopped at an ordinary python sighting when suddenly the python climbed in the car’s bonnet.
Lucky there was a place where you can get out of your car near by. They quickly drove to that Mathekenyane look out and managed to remove the python safely.
As one of the largest national parks in the world, Kruger National Park is home to a wide variety of animals, including lions, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, and, of course, giant pythons. So, while a snake sighting isn’t all that rare in Kruger, you typically see them out in the wild. Not just chilling under the hood of a car. But, hey, maybe our safari-going friends in the video just happen to stumble upon a python who was also a massive gearhead. Snake it til you make it, I guess.
