Python riddled with over 500 ticks found in Australian swimming pool


Snake catchers in Brisbane, Australia, came across a carpet python covered in more than 500 ticks.

Tony Harris, a local snake catcher, told Euronews that he found the serpent in a woman’s swimming pool where it was trying to drown the ticks.

“Pythons are usually very docile to start with and because of how weak this one was he didn’t put up any fight,” said Harris.

The snake catcher later took it to a wildlife centre for treatment.
