In the rugged Tsodilo Hills region of the Kalahari Desert in northwestern Botswana, the San people [a.k.a. "Bushmen"] claim a python god first created humanity.

Today it was reported that a rock carving of a python's head and neck as tall as a man and 20 feet long was discovered inside the Rhino Cave along with artifacts at least 70,000 years old.

"You could see the mouth and eyes of the snake. It looked like a real python," said Sheila Coulson of the University of Oslo. "The play of sunlight over the indentations gave them the appearance of snake skin. At night, the firelight gave one the feeling that the snake was actually moving."
