The 22ft python who needs SEVEN zoo keepers to carry her to her health check

The reticulated python, who lives in Chester Zoo, had her eyes covered to keep her calm as she was checked over.

These snakes feed on rodents, small mammals and birds, while larger specimens have been known to eat small primates and pigs – and even reportedly humans.

They have sharp teeth which they use to hold their prey before crushing and suffocating them with their body. 

Female reticulated pythons are capable of laying between 60 and 100 eggs at a time, which take between 70 -90 days to hatch.

Long load: Chester Zoo staff carry Bali the 22ft python to a health check

Curator of lower Vertebrates and Invertebrates Richard Gibson soothes Bali ahead of her visit to the doctor

Slippery customer: An agitated Bali bears her fangs

Big day for Bali: The snake's eyes were covered to keep her calm (left) and its easy to see why (right) as a keeper deflects her attentions with a rubbish bin lid
