Before you read today's article, let us find out what a python is. The Pythonidae, commonly known as pythons, are a family of nonvenomous snakes found in Africa, Asia, and Australia. Among its members are some of the largest snakes in the world. Ten genera and 42 species are currently recognized. Pythons use their sharp, backward-curving teeth, four rows in the upper jaw, two in the lower, to grasp prey which is then killed by constriction; after an animal has been grasped to restrain it, the python quickly wraps a number of coils around it. Death occurs primarily by cardiac arrest
Although its interactivity and beauty draws much attention, some feel it is unpredictable. It does not attack humans by nature, but will bite and possibly constrict if it feels threatened, or mistakes a hand for food. While not venomous, large pythons can inflict serious injuries, sometimes requiring stitches.
However, a brave guy who has taken to his Facebook page to share how he killed a giant python with a thick stick and a huge stone celebrates it on social media. He says he was scared when he saw the python in the bush at first before he got the courage and took a thick stick and a huge stone which was beside him to hit it hard at the python.
Also, he said that the python was in a bush which is near to the road. He saw it on the ground and decided to kill it. He took a huge stone which was around to hit at the head of the python in a first attempt. He took another one and strike it again on the head before he saw blood oozing from its head. Although the guy was a bit scared, he got the courage and killed that giant python with the stick beside him. Most of the young guys who now claim that they are the bosses in town cannot even hold this python but this brave was able to kill this python and took a picture with it.
Pythons are also integrated into some aspects of African health and belief use, often with the added risk of contacting zoonotic diseases. Python bodies and blood are used for African traditional medicines and other belief uses as well, one in-depth study of all animals used by the Yorubas of Nigeria for traditional medicine found that the African Python is used to cure rheumatism, snake poison, appeasing witches, and accident prevention.
