Giant Snake in the Pool
Occurred on January 5, 2023 / Koh Lipe, Thailand
Info from Licensor: "My husband and I are staying on a beautiful Thai island that we visit frequently, in a 5 star resort. Last night there was some commotion by the pool, we looked down and realised that there was a 12-foot python, just swimming around the swimming pool. The pool has rooms looking right out onto it with their own private patios onto the pool. The snake was right next to people's rooms. The python was absolutely huge and was just swimming around while the hotel staff attempted to catch it with a tiny net. The python was eventually caught, and the hotel staff made sure that it was reassured by stroking it on the head while they were capturing it. They then took it into the jungle to release it safely. The staff told me this is a really rare occurrence, it’s only happened twice in over ten years."
