A 3-meter-long python stopped traffic in Sattahip as it tried to work off a full stomach.
Resident Aphidet Srikhum, 21, called Sawang Rojthummasathan animal-rescue officers Sept. 28 after the giant snake brought cars to a half on Soi Bonkai. The python’s stomach was bulging, full from some big afternoon meal.
The python, about 12 cm. wide, tried to escape when it saw the men with nets coming, but after about 10 minutes, officers had rounded up the reptile.
It was later released back into the wild, away from human traffic.
Rescue workers very carefully subdue the lengthy reptile.
