    ewww sobrang dumi siguro nung junkyard na yan as in junk kaya binahayan na ng ahas. baka meron pa yan ha. baka dengue-carrying mosquitoes meron din dyan. they should check. pero sabagay baka kinakain na ng ahas mga lamok dyan.

    Apat na metro ang haba! Pwedeng makalulon ng tao yan. Ipakain sina Ampatuan dyan, o kaya kay Lolong na lang.

    Ready your wands, fellow netizens. Voldemort is coming.

    Is sawa a “boa constrictor” or a “reticulated python”? Isn’t boa constrictor a snake of south america, while pythons (reticulated, burmese, rock) are what we have in asia and africa?

      • pangitbudhiko

        pinagtangol mo ang idol mo, actually hindi siya lalamunin nuong ahas, at masusuka siya sa TOXIC brain of abnoy

      • Ping Gonzales

         Pangit baka ikaw ang lalamunin kc gusto ng python ay mga pangit gaya mo lol

      • pangitbudhiko

        hindi niya ako kakainin, dahil alam niya magkauri kami,, kaya nga “””””pangitbudhiko””””

    Keep him there and let him roam around. It will serve as guard to ward off pickpockets and holdapers. Besides, his main staple diet probably rats in the area. If we can’t rely on the authority to maintain peace and order in the area, maybe, this big snake will do a better job.

    “13.2-feet” ???

    Proofreader, please take note.

    Why not make it “13.2-foot” ?

    Hindi po yan boa constrictor. That’s a reticulated python. Boa constrictors are far smaller and are more common in South America

  • bugoybanggers

    Dapat hinayaan na lang ito tutal naka katulong ito para puksain ang mga PESTEng daga sa lugar na iyan. Pero may punto rin na hinuli kasi maraming mamumulutan baka madali pa ng mga manginginum.

    Ang Boa constrictor ay makikita sa mga kalsada na nagkukunwaring pulis at ang Reticulated python ay makikita sa senado at Kongreso at ang iba ay articulated kung idepensa ang sarili sa pangong
