The last few days have been very busy and I’ve not had much profound to say, but this story of a Kenyan man escaping from a python by biting it caught my eye.
When the snake coiled itself around his upper body, Mr Nyaumbe resorted to desperate measures.
“It waggled its ragged and scary tail on my mouth. I had to bite it as I struggled, one hand incapacitated,” he told the paper.
The python dragged him up a tree, but when it eased its grip, Mr Nyaumbe said he was able to take a mobile phone out of his pocket and ring for help.
You can read the whole thing here while admiring his sang froid. I have to admit that I’ve bitten python too, but only when it was cooked and in a hot pepper sauce.
