Prepared according to local custom, python is grilled over a fire or fried in a pan with vegetables then eaten with rice. Delighted Tinsung Ujang, 60, who found the pair, said villagers in the town of Bintulu near the Kelawit River would feast on the meat for days.

He said: ‘I looked down into the hole in the wood and was surprised to see the female mating with a smaller male snake.

‘We had to split the timber to reach them and it was difficult to remove the snakes because of their size and the position. They were locked together.


‘I was even more surprised because I have never seen snakes mating before and never seen a giant python that was more than five meters long like this. The male python was quite small.

‘It was an amazing occurrence and I proceeded to shoot the two reptiles because for our community it is an exotic dish that is also our favorite dish.’

Tinsung said when he returned to town with the pythons on the back of a pick-up truck he was greeted with cheers.

‘The snake meat was then divided and its share was distributed equally to villagers and nearby farm workers.’

The female python measured 20 feet, just six feet shorter than the largest python recorded in Malaysia.
