A Stomp contributor spotted a 1.5-metre long python at Marsiling a few days back, and one of her friends tried to 'get friendly' by touching it.
What happened next had them all shrieking and retreating.
According to the Stomp contributor, they were going for supper nearby at 2am when they spotted the reptile opposite Woodland Town Garden.
They then called ACRES and filmed this footage while waiting for them to arrive.
In the video, the Stomp contributor's friend inches close to the python, trying to grab its tail.
She said: "Watch how scary the python gets while a friend of mine literally pulled the python's tail. Nope, we weren't rough to this python."
It lunged with a sharp hiss and scared everyone away.
The second video shows ACRES coming to take the python away.
They also explained that it was relatively "harmless" but will "give a bite when disturbed like all wild animals".
