A huge python found in a neighborhood housing drain was slithering through feeds today.
Rescuers Animal Concerns Research and Education Society, or ACRES, were seen skillfully capturing the large snake found on the ground floor of Blk 20 on Teck Whye Lane in footage posted yesterday by Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong.
“Python found near Blk 20 😱. Thanks to [Chua Chu Kang Town Council] and ACRES for helping to remove it safely,” Gan wrote.
It took two rescuers to calmly catch the roaming reptile by its mouth before placing it in a styrofoam box.
Gan is also one of the MPs of the Chua Chu Kang GRC which the neighborhood is under.
ACRES has not immediately responded to Coconuts’ queries requesting comment.
In contrast to their menacing build, pythons are nonvenomous and are considered one of the friendliest snakes as they are not aggressive unless provoked.
