Python Mock Attacks Hiker
While out hiking on a game farm in South Africa, this hiker came across a large python.
Figuring it would be cool to get some footage of the large reptile, he got close to the snake.
The python didn’t take too kindly to the presence of the hiker and reared back then lunged. This of course, scared the hiker and he backed up, allowing the snake to retreat to a nearby hole.
The attack was a mock attack, meant to scare away the hiker and it worked beautifully. Looks like the fight or flight instinct told the snake to flee.
