(Newser) – Prince William and Prince Harry made a friend at a nature reserve in Botswana today: an 8-foot African rock python. Invited to pose with the fearsome but nonvenomous reptile, the royals appeared hesitant at first, but Harry was soon threatening William with the snake's head, the Daily Mail reports. The terrified animal, demonstrating what the reserve's education director called "an automatic reflex," relieved itself near the future king. "It's having a pee," William said, laughing. "It's obviously very relaxed."
