Huge Snake Chases Tourists Back Into Their Car
A massive python slithered onto a vehicle in South Africa, sending terrified passengers fleeing.
The clip shows wildlife-spotting tourists jumping into their cars and reversing away from the whopping 17-foot snake.
The snake pops up seemingly out of nowhere and heads straight towards the cars on a dirt road near Durban.
After slithering out from under a boat, the snake makes a move towards a Land Rover, while a ballsy cameraman attempts to pull it back by its tail.
Looking as though it's oblivious to the people surrounding it, the snake then tries to mount the car - while the driver makes a quick decision between driving away or closing the doors.
He chooses to reverse as the snake continues to make its way up the bonnet. The movement of the car throws the snake to the ground, but it doesn't want to give up that easily and appears to take off after the reversing Land Rover.
Earlier this month, a diver shared footage of the shocking moment he came face-to-face with a giant anaconda. Not what you want when you're out for a nice swim, really.
Bartolomeo Bove and his friend JucaYgarape were diving in the Formoso River in Brazil, when they stumbled Green Anaconda, the largest living snake in the world.
Measuring an incredible seven metres (23ft) and weighing around 90kg, the snake can be seen just chilling on the river bed before checking out the camera.
It then swims away, looking a lot more relaxed than the South African snake above, before Bove follows it and continues filming.
Despite scaring the s*** out of me, Bove said he hopes the footage will show people that the huge anacondas aren't as scary as people think.
Bove said: "The rivers and the bodies of water around the Bonito area are the only places in South America where anacondas can be found in crystal clear waters, and therefore diving with them is possible.
"As shown in the footage the anaconda swims calm and peaceful, completely indifferent to our presence - sometimes she comes closer, curious about my camera [and] licking the lens.
"The behaviour of the anaconda debunks the myth that it is an aggressive and violent creature that can endanger people's lives."
