‘I’ve never seen a snake this big in my life’

BURMESE tourist Sumaiya Ayatullah captured this video of a python casually slithering near a popular beach on the Sunshine Coast.

Mrs Ayatullah was at Coolum Beach with her husband and two children when she spotted the reptile crossing the footpath before heading up a tree on the beach.

 

Yep, it was a big one.
