From the file of “what the f— are these people thinking?” comes a story out of the Philippines where the Cebu City zoo offers visitors the opportunity to receive a massage from four very large pythons. Oh don’t worry they feed them 10 chickens beforehand to curb any hunger pangs. Oh great. And it’s free so there’s that too.
You can’t scream for help or breath too heavy for fear the the snake will think you’re prey or a predator. Burmese pythons can quickly squeeze their victims to death. And with four of the 5m-long snakes weighing a combined 250kg, there is no escape once the ‘treatment’ starts.
