Stomping at a respectable Python

During my recent visit to the zoo, I came across a lazy bunch of huge pythons, in a cage. I, the enthusiast, needed some action πŸ˜‰ The zoo -keeper was busy, elsewhere……so I grabbed the chance and stood by the iron grill, stomping hard for some reaction πŸ˜›

Ahaa !! One of them was curious enough to giving me a moving ovation πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

first reaction to my stomping

I couldn’t make out whether that was ‘Hi Andy’ or the beginning of a ‘yawn’ πŸ˜›

'hi Andy' ? 'yawn' ?

‘hi Andy’ ? ‘yawn’ ?

Huh !!! confusing !!!

Once again, stomp !! stomp !! πŸ˜€ and he was now more than curious πŸ˜‰ Spectators around me gave mixed reactions, from mouth gaping to eye-balling πŸ˜‰

there !! he moves towards me

there !! he moves towards me


he uncoiled himself and moves towards the grill

From a distance, I could see the zoo -keeper walking briskly towards us, gesticulating wildly. Ohh man !! :/ I am going to escorted to the zoo gate πŸ˜‰

But this gorgeous guy kept moving and I was transfixed. It is one thing to see a python on National Geographic, quite another to see it so close.

he is almost near my feet

he is almost near my feet

Zoo -keeper arrived !!! 😦 and shooed us all away :/

Au revoir hunk  !! ❀


I am greatly impressed by Andy Townend and his work. While clicking these pictures, there was a quick flash through my thoughts about his awesome clicks and writing. If you are looking for inspiration, go check out his work at belgianstreets

He is an outstanding blogger, a photographer with interesting perspective. I am glad we crossed paths. πŸ™‚

      Only if I had a tripod to stand the camera :/ There were too many people around pushing and jostling, for me to click. And I piqued not only the interest of the python but also the spectators around me πŸ˜‰ hence, too much disturbance πŸ˜›

  3. Wow – I am sure that python did not like all of the attention – great photos πŸ™‚
