Chased by an African Grootslang

Chased by a South African grootslang, Thrown in the air with a pop and a bang, He yelled “Help! I am being EATEN! Dang!” Grootslang chomped him in half with one fang. I screamed bloody murder with a heartfelt clang. Climbed a bamboo tree with a tall overhang. The grootslang laughed, and he and I sang. A rare interaction with a determined grootslang.
