While we all tend to dread visits to the doctor not many of us require seven people to get us there.

But Bali the python is no ordinary patient, and as she measures 22ft in length, the great snake required a team of zoo keepers to carry her in for her health check.

The reticulated python, who lives in Chester Zoo, had her eyes covered to keep her calm as she was checked over.

These snakes feed on rodents, small mammals and birds, while larger specimens have been known to eat small primates and pigs and even reportedly humans.

They have sharp teeth which they use to hold their prey before crushing and suffocating them with their body.

Female reticulated pythons are capable of laying between 60 and 100 eggs at a time, which take between 70 -90 days to hatch.
