Grappling with python

On a recent visit to Katerniaghat wildlife sanctuary in district Bahraich, Uttar pradesh I stumbled on an information related to presence of pythons in the abandoned buildings of katernia ghat narrow gauge railway station in katernia range of katernia ghat wildlife sanctuary, India. We immediately set out to explore the area the area on reaching the site we waded through the thick elephant grass to reach the room in the ruins of the abandoned Railway station there we spotted the python lying idle enjoying the winter sunshine.It became agitated by the sounds of our approaching footsteps and tried to resist our intrusion in his domain but I was able to shoot some videos and photographs before he retreated into his dwelling place.
