An Australian named Matthew Bager offered a helping hand to a two-and-a-half meter python.
THE FACEBOOK POST
A few days back, Facebook user – Tracey Heimberger posted an image in her timeline that became viral thereafter. The image showed a snake loving young do-gooder, Bager helping a Pilbara Rick Olive Python crawl through the road safely. Also, he is seen lying next to the serpent to reveal how long it was.
Mathew and his work colleagues spotted the snake at Dampier Port Authority, Western Australia. They were driving to the port and initially assumed the snake to be a rope used for docking. However, very soon they realized that it was Pilbara Rick Olive Python – a threatened species found only in Pilbara regions of Western Australia.
Below is the image posted by Tracey Heimberger on her Facebook page,
Bager’s good deed by diverting the traffic around the snake deserves a lot of appreciation. If not Bager and his good friends, the snake would have been killed on the busy road.
In fact, the Pilara Rick Olive Pythons are non-venomous. But, they are killed sometimes after mistaking them to be highly venomous Brown Snake.
