Big Rock Python Rescued after Strangling Goat


Edited: Aug 7, 2017


Snake catcher André Cilliers holding the head of the 64 lb rock python he rescued after having been called in by a local goat farmer who found the snake after it had caught one of his goats. André and his wife Michelle are famous for their continual efforts to educate locals to not kill every snake they see. They catch and release into game reserves all snakes from black mambas to Mozambique spitting cobras to rock pythons.


This 14 ft python was by no means the biggest one André has caught - he says a 16 ft 8" biggie he caught two years ago in the same area holds that honour.


The fate of the goat is unknown.

    Does Earth's Magnetic and Electric Anomaly have any bearing on this? On Wednesday 5th September a sudden explosion demolished a module that manufactures highly volatile components for commercial ammunition propellants. Eight people were killed. Before the explosion one observation was made that a flaming spark was seen running up water pipes along a wall. In the same area there also exists a magnetic field observatory that inter alia has an interest in the earth magnetic field anomaly having been observed for many years. This anomaly has a direct relationship with the anomalies of earth's electric current, as well as with the in-drawn radiation from the Allen Radiation Belt which is a known radiation risk for the International Space Station. A net combination of these phenomena is known to cause an acute increase of near surface or on surface conductivity which is related to clear weather electric discharges into man-made structures. We shall closely follow the reports regarding the investigation into this matter and have our own discussion about these anomalies and the risks they hold for people who keep large volumes of propellants on their properties.

    These photos from the Londolozi Blog shows the first level of consumption. Then come the ants... A hippo has a lot of mass of concentrated protein. Its skin is virtually impenetrable and needs skinning knives of the highest order being 1.5" thick in places. I have seen little deer carcasses lying around in Colorado for a week and more. Look at this: Half a day and one night is all that is needed. The area around the carcass turned into a mini dust bowl Here is the full story from the Londolozi Blog: Enjoy!
