We spotted this specimen while searching for paths to reach the elephant herds across the marsh. Even though the photo shows the specimen clearly the camouflage on these snakes is awesome.

Southern African Rock Python is Africa’s largest snake species and one of the world’s largest, the typical African rock python adult measures 4.8 m (16 ft). Rumors of specimens over 6 m (20 ft) are considered reliable, although larger specimens have never been confirmed.
