Tony Harrison from Gold Coast and Brisbane Snake Catcher was called to remove a reptile from a pool in Australia. The snake catcher live streamed the moment he spotted the tick-riddled snake.
"He's got hundreds of ticks on him. That's why he's in the water, he's trying to drown them," Harrison said.
"I've never seen anything like this. I've done this for 26 years and this is the worst I've ever seen," he added.
According to Stephen Barker, a professor of parasitology at the University of Queensland, the amount of reptile ticks attached to the python was very unusual.
