Last Thursday at Dalian’s South Tunzi Beach, a woman caught everyone’s attention with her four-meter-long python, the literal kind. Apparently snakes enjoy a good swim every once in a while. Those who weren’t too terrified of the creature happily surrounded the woman to take pictures and ask questions.
“According to the owner, she has had the python for 11 years, and she feeds it raw meat,” added Qu [Guosheng, a resident]. “But she didn’t mention what species the python was.”
This is not the only report of a Chinese person keeping a huge snake as a pet. In late July, a man was reported to have brought a large reptile to a public park. The pet was said to be a very rare species of Burmese python that can grow up to seven meters long.
