A massive python was allegedly burned to death in a forest fire in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
Singapore has been blanketed in a stifling haze as a result of recent forest fires in Indonesia. Many animals lost their homes, and some perished in the fires. Tragically for the local ecosystem, many animals died including massive snakes. Some of these snakes were huge and could reportedly swallow goats and cattle whole. They measured up to 10 meters (32 feet) in length and 20 centimeters (7.8 inches) in diameter.
A Facebook user named Johan Michael Median Pasha posted a photo of what looks to be a giant python discovered burnt beyond recognition in a Kalimantan jungle.
This specific python species is known as the ‘Indonesian Anaconda,’ according to the non-profit animal protection charity Garda Satwa Foundation although it’s actually a python. Locals refer to it as the “Tangkaluk,” which translates to “King of Snakes.”
