Why did the snake cross the road? Well, we don’t really know why, but he did cause some problems along the way.
A giant snake was recently the talk of the town after he caused a huge traffic jam in a popular holiday spot on Shute Harbour Road in Airlie Beach, Australia. Police and traffic department were called out to the scene to redirect cars, seeing that the reptile was not bothered by time.
The massive reptile was believed to be a python, and had clearly just had a large meal as a huge bulge was seen in its stomach as it slowly made its way across the road. Well, take Christmas dinner for example. After eating the day away, I too would not be able to move fast, or move at all. The python stretched about three metres long and eventually made a safe crossing to the other side of the road.
Pythons are nonvenomous and are not known to attack humans unless they feel threatened.
Cars were piled up down the road while other motorists pulled out their phones to capture the unusual sight.
Officials redirected the traffic so that the magnificent creature could slowly make it across to its destination safely.
Sherley Sulistio, one of the drivers, took a video of the snake crossing the road. Sherley added that she was on her way to the Airlie Beach markets when they were suddenly stopped in the middle of the road.
“Luckily they stopped me at the front row so I could capture this moment,” Sherley added.
