KwaZulu-Natal snake catcher Nick Evans saved a 3m python after apparently planning that the cowherd would have it for lunch.
Evans received a phone call from a resident of Osindiswini on Saturday and reported that the cowherd intends to eat snakes.
“He told me that the cowherd caught a big python the day before. At first he intended to eat it,” Evans said.
“But the environmentally friendly resident managed to convince him, and I was called to gather,” he added.
He said eating snakes is illegal, but it’s not uncommon for some people to eat pythons.
Python captured by Nick Evans.
According to Evans, when the nomad caught the snake, he noticed an egg in the hole in which the snake lay. When the snake catcher arrived at Osindiswini, the nomads hid the snake in a bucket in the bush.
“The snake was emptying its intestines at one point, but now it’s sitting in it and frozen,” Evans said. “I pulled out a filthy snake,” he added.
He said the snake looked thin. Snakes are taken to the dangerous creatures of Ushaka, where they are treated and fed.
Evans said the eggs had already hatched. “I’m sure most of the babies were scattered, and only a few babies remained,” he added.
Evans did not deny or confirm the effects of eating snakes, but said that wild snakes often carry parasites. “I’ve also seen pythons empty their intestines and come up with terrifying things.
“I never eat or recommend it, not just because I like living,” he said.
