Evans, from KwaZulu-Natal Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, said it was the most “incredible, exciting yet emotional rescue call ever”.
He explained that the python was found coiled around her eggs in a gap between the top of a garage wall and an adjoining embankment that was covered by roofing.
“It created a neat tunnel-like hideout, although it was only about 2m deep,” he said.
Evans said: “My first reaction when I looked in was: ‘Wow! That’s a big python!’.
