His face went bright red as he was slowly strangled by the snake in the frightening footage.
Yet the desperate dad managed to slither free.
Craig, who runs the company Stop That Pest, was selected last year along with eight other Brits to experience pest control, Aussie style.
Craig told the Birmingham Mail......
“The snake’s head was bigger than my hand.
“The camera man had to rest the camera on his knee because he was bent over double laughing so much.I don’t like snakes or spiders or anything like that, I’m terrified of most things.“I work in pest control but I hate all those types of things.
“I didn’t want to do it, and I just went to pieces.“I kept thinking of myself on the news, getting strangled by a python on TV.“But I thought to myself that I can’t let the Brummies down back home.“I went to grab it and it went for me. It throttled me.”
