Carol Crawford was visiting the Australia Zoo when she was “confronted” by a carpet python. She was walking down a path when the reptile apparently peeked its head out of the bush.

Robert Irwin handles a carpet python like a professional.
 

“You wouldn’t believe it ūüėúūüėĚūüėā just walked into Australia zoo and a little carpet python reared up at me from the bush ‘Wild’,” Crawford wrote on Facebook. Crawford then “high tailed” it to alert staff who said they would send someone. Who did they send?

None other than Robert Irwin! Son of the late Steve Irwin, aka Crocodile Hunter. Irwin showed up on a scooter with a bag, gently picked the snake up and placed it in the bag. Crawford then said Irwin scooted away like it was no big deal. Which it wasn’t. For him.
