It's yet another day in sunny Australia.
Snakes might not be the most sympathy-evoking creatures on this planet, but seeing this python struggling with so many parasites on it that it can barely see is heartbreaking. Even some people with snake phobias have shared, after reading the news, that they actually felt bad for the python.
It's amazing how a snake can make you feel so grossed-out, yet so sympathetic towards it.
Over 500 ticks were found on this poor guy, Insider says. The snake was literally being eaten alive.
But the story of Tony Harrison, 51, who saved the python, is just as incredible. Tony has been obsessed with reptiles since he was a child. Naturally, he grew up to become a professional snake catcher and started a family that is in love with reptiles too.
The poor python was really lucky to be rescued by Tony and his family.
