Giant Python Caught in Pattaya

Pattaya —

A large python measuring over 3 meters long was captured by rescue workers in Pattaya on Sunday, May 12th.

The snake was found hiding inside a fence wall at a rental house on Soi Khao Ta Lo 16/1 in the Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. Residents of the area called for help after spotting the snake slithering around the property.

Upon receiving the call, rescue workers from the Nongprue Municipality’s Disaster Relief Unit rushed to the scene with snake catching equipment. When they arrived, they found the python curled up under a pile of wood. The rescue workers carefully removed the wood and then used a snake catching tool to grab the snake’s head and pull it out from its hiding place. The operation was completed quickly and safely.

The snake was later released into the wild in a safe location away from human habitation.

Mr. Paiwal Chaiphiram, 44, one of the residents, told The Pattaya News that he and his friends were sitting outside their homes when they saw something slithering past. At first, they thought it was a scincoid lizard, but upon closer inspection, they realized it was a large python. The snake was about to enter their house when they ran away and called for help.
