Recently, in the eastern area of Taunggyi city, Myanmar, there was a case of Mr. Mihnahi Yasu Yihira who was attacked by a cobra and a giant python and killed his chickens. Through many videos shared on social networks, the incident took place on September 23.
Late last night, he discovered many strange sounds around the area around the chicken coop, duck house, breeding area. At first he thought that a thief entered the house to catch chickens, ducks,… However, this time the sound was really different, he went out and discovered a giant reptile crawling into the breeding area.
So, the very next morning he gathered the young men in the village and tried to find the culprit behind this. They began rummaging through the inner corners of the livestock area with the hope of finding something. And more than 15 minutes of searching later they discovered a nest of king cobras in a crate in front of the breeding area.
While they were looking for tools to find a way to catch these snakes, a young man in the crowd who came to his house that day discovered something more terrifying. That is, there is also a large python lying in the water pipe in front of this area.
It is estimated that there must be up to 5 snakes in the nest, each averaging from about 1.5m to 6m long and weighing about 10kg on average. Fortunately, they are not extremely poisonous, so the danger is also reduced. Besides, the giant python they found was up to 15m long and weighed nearly 100kg.
This is a huge weight, not only can swallow chickens, but it can also attack a deer or an adult goat.
After the short videos went viral on various social platforms, questions were raised, as well as some mixed comments.
“How can a cobra and a giant python be able to stay in the same area without attacking each other? Aren’t they competing for each other’s food?
“These captured animals do not know if they will be returned to the wild. Seeing how big it is, I don’t know how many years it has lived.”
Currently, the disappearance of the family of Mr. Mihnahi Yasu Yihira has passed and the animals have also been returned to the wild, far away from the population, according to the provincial committee’s information.
