Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Australian police shared a photo of a monster python that blocked the path of a patrol vehicle on a road in Queensland's Far North.
The Queensland Police Service said the patrol vehicle was forced to stop in Wujul Wujul during a night patrol when the officers spotted the massive scrub python stretched out across the road.
"There was no passing in the police vehicle until this scrub python was good and ready to move," police said.
Sgt. Ben Tome snapped a photo of Acting Senior Constable Chris Kenny posing next to the "monster" snake while they waited for it to move.
"Very brave of you Ben!" the police service quipped.
"Not fond of the police attention, the scrub python made his way quickly off the road so the officers could continue on their way," police said.
