A python at a Sussex wildlife park has shed over five metres of skin in seven days.
Basil from Drusillas Park is the largest snake at the zoo and was born in 1990.
The reptiles are found in the rainforests of south-east Asia and can grow up to seven metres.
They shed their skin around four to five times a year in order to grow.
