A massive python in the Umhlumayo near Ladysmith, in KwaZulu-Natal, had a 9-year-old boy fleeing for his life, the Ladysmith Gazette reports.
The large python was slithering away from a house where it had consumed a live chicken when the boy stumbled upon it.
The snake lunged at the young boy, who was almost bitten in the long grass. He quickly climbed up the nearest tree.
A councillor from the area called snake man Fanie Cilliers, who went out and removed the enormous creature.
Members from the area were amazed at the size of the snake as the snake measured in at a whopping 4.3 metres.
The young boy was lucky he was not hurt, said members of the community.
