Yesterday morning there was an unwelcome visitor to the moobaan: a python (reticulated python, I think). The local snake catchers were called and he (or she) took it away, though at one point one of the security guards was bitten.

I had feared that this beautiful creature was headed for the cooking pot, but I’m assured it’ll either end up in a zoo or be released in the countryside away from people.

I find it surprising that a snake can grow to that size in urban Bangkok. That said, it might just possibly be an escaped pet.
