Zookeeper’s ʜᴏʀʀᴏʀ as giant python suddenly lunges for his face while guarding her eggs

Jay Brewer, who owns a Reptile Zoo in the Golden State, posted the “crazy” sᴄᴀʀᴇ on Instagram as he tried to retrieve the snake’s eggs which were at risk of going rotten.


Footage shows the animal making a dart for the sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ zookeeper as it tries to defend itself with its exposed fangs. Mr Brewer proceeds to duck and dive out of the way of the oncoming reptile and then looks backs towards the camera stating that he “doesn’t normally get nervous, but he is now”.

Pythons are ᴀᴍʙᴜsʜ ʜᴜɴᴛᴇʀs and wait until their prey comes close before mounting an ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ, making stark and sudden movements.

After posting the video online, he clarified the situation and the reasons for his ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs attempt. Writing on his Instagram page, he said: “When I say this snake is grumpy, I mean she’s grumpy! This is one of the craziest clutches I’ve pulled in a long time. She doesn’t know I’m just trying to save the few good eggs she has. Without removing them, even the good ones would have rotted. That is why I’m willing to take the risk to save the babies.”
