A very suspicious speed bump! Huge snake mistaken for sleeping policeman

This road bump is not what it first seems – though it’s probably still pretty effective at slowing down traffic.

This giant python was spotted making its way across the road in rural Limpopo, South Africa.

It was Cameron Watt, 50, that captured the footage and he says that he’s never seen one this big before.

Cameron, who works at the University of the Witwatersrand, said: “I was walking in the bush and came across the snake.

“I then called the kids so that they could have a look at the specimen as we have a lot of pythons on the property, but in my five years here I have never seen such a magnificent specimen.

“The kids had watched the snake move through the bush and just took a video of it crossing the road to show friends.

“I was really impressed to find a specimen that size as they are a protected species as people often catch them and sell them for pets hence the dwindling numbers.

“To see a specimen like that for yourself in the bush is something quiet special.

“Most people are amazed at the size of it and the fact that we still get some in the wild that size is really special.”
