It’s true to the fact that most people try to kill snakes as soon after seeing them. It’s because people feel that killing them is the only way to get rid of the poisonous creatures and considering the fact that children live in the area, parents take precautionary measures by killing and burning them at the first place.
Apart from the venomous snakes, there are different snakes species which don’t need venom to kill their prey but make quick twists and turns before swallowing it completely. They are none other than Boa, Python and Anaconda. Well, we are quite familiar with these names.
Case in point, a worker in Kerala was rescued from the grip of a huge python after the reptile coiled itself around his neck.
The incident happened in Thiruvananthapuram when the labourers were involved in a cleaning operation at a local college at nearby Neyyar dam.
Bhuvanachandran Nair and two others were engaged in the work when the python, all of a sudden, coiled itself around his neck and tried to choke him.
As per The Hindu, 61-year-old Bhuvanachandran Nair stumbled upon the snake at around 11 am on Tuesday morning. He and other labourers were clearing bushes near the Neyyar Dam in Thiruvananthapuram and it was when they came across a deadly python and they tried to put it in a sack.
While one held on tightly to the neck of the reptile, the other caught hold of its tail and pulled it away, saving the man.
A video clip showed the snake around Nair’s neck and the people who witnessed this found it hard to fight the dangerous reptile.
Officials have decided to release the snake deep into the forest after keeping it under observation for 2 days.
Bhuvanachandran was admitted to the hospital and got the much-needed medication for pain in the neck and was then discharged later.
Some people across the banks of a stream in West Sumatra, Indonesia spotted a 27-feet reticulated python.
While trying to catch eels, these guys accidentally stepped on the snake thinking that it was a long log. The annoyed creature bounced back all of a sudden against six men who did their best to wrestle with the giant.
In the fierce battle between the men and the snake, a resident by the name of Tan Galuang, said the snake wrapped around one man’s ankle.
