Sur­viv­ing a python

The Week - - Letters -

To The Times

Bear Grylls may be in­ter­ested in a Nige­rian trick I learnt from the chief hunter of a small vil­lage: if at­tacked by a large python, you should let him swal­low one of your legs as far as your up­per thigh, and then do a sharp and deep kneebend. This ploy, the hunter ex­plained solemnly, would break the python’s spine. Robert For­rest-webb, St Weonards, Here­ford­shire
