5-meter python handed over to forest rangers


A man in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday turned over a python he had kept for seven years to the Forest Management Department.

Nguyen Thu Tran, 44, handed the python, weighing 53kg and stretching more than 5m long. This is the biggest python the department has ever received.

Tran said that seven years ago a friend gave him the python to eat but that he felt sorry for the snake and so put it in a cage and raised it until today.

“When I first got it, the python weighed just 7kg, but now it has become too big so I want to return it back to the wild,” he said.

The python goes by the scientific name Python bivittatus and belongs to the Group IIB of Vietnam’s Red List, which means animals that are endangered, rare and precious wildlife species. It is listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The python can grow as long as 8m long.
