Thank you Amy, that was wonderful, but also very sad! That is one very big, old Python & not the best way for it to end its life, but they are really magnificent reptiles & I have a love for them & always will. Have a lovely hot day in your paradise 🙂

Amy, First of all, I envy you being out in the bush with Elmon every day. We have so many vivid memories being with him and seeing things large and small, always learning.
The only Rock Python we saw was in 2008 with Jeremiah and Chris G. It was in a tree not far from a pair of cubs. We were told the leopardess killed it about an hour after we left.
Finally, John never disappoints – the clip is beautifully narrated and edited.
BTW John, Mark Knopfler’s Album The Tracker doesn’t touch hearing you sing, The Tracker in homage to Elmon.

First of all, it sounds like working with (the) Elmom Mhlongo was an experience in itself! I’ve also never heard of a leopard taking on a python that big! Not a pretty sight, but still an amazing find!
