Shocked drivers had to stop when a large python slithered across the road.

The 10ft long reptile was seen in Palawan province, the Philippines on December 9.

Biker Alfred Christian Barretto recorded the footage while waiting for the serpent to pass.

He said: ‘This really shocked me so I stayed well back. My workplace is near so there were people to help if I needed it.’
