‘We had to split the timber to reach them and it was difficult to remove the snakes because of their size and the position. They were locked together.

‘I was even more surprised because I have never seen snakes mating before and never seen a giant python that was more than five metres long like this. The male python was quite small.

‘It was an amazing occurrence and I proceeded to shoot the two reptiles because for our community it is an exotic dish that is also our favourite dish.’
