In another similar incident from last year, a 2-metre-long python was rescued from the fuel tank of a Thai farmer’s pickup truck. The farmer reportedly had parked his car and went to water his sugarcane fields and he returned, he found a python near his car’s engine.

He shut his truck’s door and opened the bonnet expecting the snake to slither away but instead, the python went further inside and soon disappeared. The farmer then called for rescue, a video of which is available on YouTube.

The video shows two police officers on the spot monitoring the situation as the rescue team went about its work, noticing the snake’s head inside the fuel tank. It took them at least an hour to safely rescue the python from the car.
