Nature is moving into suburbia, which is evident in the strange animals that people keep finding in their homes or on their property.
A Benoni laundry room played host to a leopard last month. You can watch that video here.
More recently, a Durban couple had to call in an expert when they discovered an extremely large python trying to slither into their yard.
The expert, in this case, is KwaZulu-Natal snake catcher Nick Evans.

The snaked measured a cool 3.9m and weighed 31kg.
Evans wrote on Facebook: “What a beast! Would love to know what it’s been feeding on!”
“This is the biggest python I’ve rescued,” he said, accompanying the post with a big smiling emoji.

Remember that time a python tried to kill me? Oh, how we laughed and laughed…

I don’t know how to feel about the fact that he’s wearing slip-slops.
The python was released back into the wild, having learned a thing or two about trying to live with humans.
