GIANT PYTHON GIVEN ULTRASOUND AT CHESTER ZOO

A python at Chester Zoo required a team of TEN to carry her into her doctor’s appointment. The 23ft patient, named JF, was carried by a team of zookeepers and vets for her annual health check. The giant 60kg snake, thought to be one of the largest in Europe, remained well-behaved during her ultrasound heart scan.
