‘A Kenyan man bit a python that wrapped him in its coils and hauled him up a tree in a struggle that lasted hours.
Farm manager Ben Nyaumbe was working in Kenya’s Malindi area at the weekend when the snake struck, apparently hunting for livestock.
“I stepped on a spongy thing on the ground and suddenly my leg was entangled with the body of a huge python,” he told the Daily Nation newspaper.
When the snake coiled itself round his upper body, he resorted to desperate measures.
“I had to bite it,” he said.’
