In Cambodia, a family has a curious pet. A child of the family has made friendship with a Burmese python with 5 meters long and weighing 100 kg. The images of the boy with the reptile are incredible.
The Burmese Python (Python molurus bivittatus) is the largest subspecies of the Indian Python and one of the 6 largest snakes in the world, native to a large variation of tropic and subtropic areas of Southern- and Southeast Asia. They are often found near water and are sometimes semi-aquatic, but can also be found in trees. Burmese Pythons are dark-coloured snakes with many brown blotches bordered in black down the back. In the wild, Burmese pythons grow to 3.7 metres (12 ft) on average, while specimens of more than 4 metres (13 ft) are uncommon. Individuals over 5 metres (16 ft) – like a specimen from Cooch Behar with 5.8 metres (19 ft) and 91 kilograms (201 lb) – are very rare. Source: Wikipedia. See more:
