A massive python was allegedly ʙᴜʀɴᴇᴅ to .d.e.a.t.h in a forest ꜰɪʀᴇ in Kalimantan. Singapore has been blanketed in a stifling haze as a result of recent forest ꜰɪʀᴇs in Indonesia. While the smog may smell bad and perhaps irritate us, we must remember that we aren’t the only ones ʜᴀʀᴍed by the ꜰɪʀᴇ. Many animals have lost their homes, and some have .ᴘᴇʀɪsʜᴇᴅ as a result.
On Sunday (15 September), a Facebook user named Johan Michael Median Pasha posted a photo of what looks to be a giant python discovered ʙᴜʀɴᴛ 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.
In a Kalimantan forest, I came upon a gigantic King Python. The snake in the photo, according to Johan, is a King Python. Locals refer to it as the “Tangkaluk,” which translates to “King of Snakes.”
Johan commented on Facebook that he had always been fascinated by the big serpent but had never seen one in person. He used to believe that the enigmatic Tangkaluk was only seen in tales and folklore.
Finally came across one, but was ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ. Johan, on the other hand, was sad when he eventually encountered one. According to 8world News, the serpent was already .d.e.a.d when he snapped those photos.
The lifeless snake’s ᴄᴏʀᴘsᴇ was extensively ʙᴜʀɴᴇᴅ and resembled a wooden log. Based on the images, we have reason to think that the reptile was in a lot of ᴘᴀɪɴ before it d.i.e.d. The snake’s cause of d.e.a.t.h was unknown at the time of writing. I’m hoping that the forest ꜰɪʀᴇ in Indonesia will be put out soon.
We hope that the Indonesian forest ꜰɪʀᴇs will be put out soon, not just for us humans who have been affected by the transboundary smoke, but also for the animals who have lost their habitats and paid the ultimate price as a result.
