A video shows the python slithering through the Seaport-Airport Road as people patiently wait to let it pass. It took around four to five minutes for the snake to cross the road and people waited for it to move off the road. In order to ensure the reptile was not run over by any passing vehicle, a few people also stood in the middle of the road. The python then disappeared into the bushes on the side of the road.

A forest department official told The New Indian Express, ”We get calls to rescue pythons from the city and surrounding areas two or three times a week. As Kochi has vast marshy land, pythons find it easy to survive. They feed on rodents that are available in plenty here.”

He added that python-spotting has become frequent in Kochi over the past three or four years.
