Durban - A python, measuring an impressive 3.9 metres was rescued from a home in Link Road, Waterfall at the weekend.
Durban snake catcher, Nick Evans, said he was alerted to the snake by couple, Wolf and Val Sperryn.
"The couple saw this magnificent beast crossing Link Road which is a very busy road. It was trying to slither under a driveway gate but it was too big," he said.
Evans said he thought the snake came from the Kloof Gorge, near Waterfall.
"Wrestling this beast wasn't so easy! Disappointed that the pics don't do it justice," he said.
