A hungry 4.2 meter-long, and what officials described as “cranky” python was caught trying to get into one of the navy houses in Sattahip, most likely looking for the chickens squawking out back.
Pichit Kleakuthan, the head of Sawang Rojthummasathan Sattahip Foundation, said his team was called to a naval officer’s house at around 5.30 a.m. Feb. 10 to try and capture a large snake.
It took 4 officers 20 minutes to capture the python, which weighed in at 68 kilograms.
The python will be released back into the wild.
The python measured 4.2 meters long, over 12 centimeters wide and weighed in at a hefty 68 kilograms.
