Who knew that one Australia’s most renowned footy legends had a massive fear of snakes?
After losing a bet that required him to face this fear, Jason ‘The Chief’ Dunstall, sat with our own legend, ‘Tiny’ draped around his neck, probably pondering how he managed to get himself into such a situation!
When The Chief met Tiny!
If you hadn’t guessed, Tiny is one of our enormous Olive Pythons, and along with his friend Olivia, and Josh, the founder of Reptile Encounters, managed to steal the show on Fox Footy’s ‘Bounce’, a few weeks ago.

Whilst we know that these pythons are harmless to humans, we don’t blame Jason for his nerves! The adult Olive Python can grow over 4 meters in length, making it Australia’s second largest snake. They are strong swimmers, often catching their prey from under the water. Did we mention that these amazing creatures count rock wallabies, monitor lizards and even crocodiles as potential meals!
Introducing: The magnificent Tiny!
Jason was (understandably) initially wary of Tiny, but was quickly won over. He even let Tiny stick around for the entire show, giving him more airtime than many primetime talk show guests in years gone by!
