Footage shows a large “world record” snake being lifted by a crane driver.
Clip: The video shows workers using a crane to lift a giant snake while clearing a rainforest in Dominica.
The animal appears to have been found by reclamation workers in a rainforest in the Caribbean island nation of Dominica. In the video, viewers can hear the man filming in amazement exclaim, “Mom, what’s that?”.
The snake was at least 3 meters long, still alive when it was picked up by the crane driver. Since being posted to social media last week, the video has garnered millions of views.
Users on the social network Reddit expressed amazement at the size of this animal. One person said: “Looks like this snake is going to hit the world record for size.” It is not clear what kind of snake it is.
Dominica, a paradise in the Caribbean only 47km long, 26km wide, is known as the “nature island” thanks to many species of wildlife.
One species of python native to this island is the boa constrictor, which can grow up to 4 meters long. When attacking, these pythons will bite their prey with their teeth before wrapping their prey and squeezing them to death.
