Well, it seems it’s not only the students who flock to the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Government Degree College for education; sometimes huge reptiles like a python also come to broaden their horizons. Keeping the sarcasm aside, a large 120foot python was captured at the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Government Degree College in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh yesterday. The massive reptile created quite a panic on the college campus but thankfully it was soon rescued. However, the snake was rescued not by some professional hand but by a botany professor from the college. Professor NB Singh captured the snake which weighed a hefty 40 kg and handed the serpent to the forest department officials once they were on the scene. The entire exercise of capturing the snake was recorded in a video which has gone viral.

Apparently, this is not the first time that Professor NB Singh has succeeded in capturing a snake. He has been known to catch over a dozen snakes till date. As reported, he says that his aim behind catching the 12-foot-long python was to relocate it to safety and make people aware that pythons are not dangerous unless and until they are provoked. Pythons are one of the largest snakes in the world and are non-venomous. They are commonly found in Africa, Asia and Australia.
