Pictures Of Charred Anaconda In Indonesian Forest Show Us The Lives Most Affected By The Fire


The Anaconda Was Found In A Forest In Kalimantan

The recent forest fires in Indonesia have caused Singapore to be shrouded in a choking shroud of haze.

While the haze may smell foul and even cause irritation, we often forget the lives who are truly affected by the forest fires — the animals who call it home.

On Sunday (15 Sep), a Facebook user named Johan Michael Median Pasha uploaded what appears to be a massive python found in a Kalimantan forest charred beyond recognition.

Encountered a massive King Anaconda in a Kalimantan forest

According to Johan, the snake in the picture is a King Anaconda. Locals call it the “Tangkaluk”, which translates to the King of Snakes.

Johan wrote in the Facebook post that he has always been curious about the massive serpent, but had never seen one in person before.

At one point, he thought that the elusive Tangkaluk was a creature only seen in myths and legends.

Encountered one at long last, but was left heartbroken

However, Johan was left heartbroken when he finally encountered one himself.

The body of the dead snake was badly burnt and resembled a wooden log. It also seems to be in a great deal of agony when it died.

At the time of writing, the snake’s cause of death remains unknown, but one thing’s for sure — the inferno must have been ferocious for the reptile to be burnt to such a degree.

Hope the forest fire in Indonesia will be extinguished soon

We hope that the forest fires in Indonesia will be extinguished soon, not just for us humans who have been suffering from the transboundary haze, but also for the animals, who have lost their homes and have paid the ultimate price as a result.
