It’s their first day of their overseas trip, and already, Princes William and Harry are causing quite a stir! On Tuesday, the British brothers visited the Mokolodi Education Center in Maun, Botswana, where they cozied up to an African rock python.

Though both guys were brave enough to put the reptile around their shoulders, you could detect a touch of fear in their eyes – especially when Harry pointed the snake’s face at his big bro! Can you blame ‘em?

The Princes’ six-day trip includes visits to Lesotho and South Africa, where they’ll watch the England vs. Algeria World Cup match on Friday. Both brothers have charitable interests in Africa; William is a patron of Botswana’s Tusk Trust, while Harry has Sentebale in Lesotho, a foundation he established for orphans of AIDS.
