The beast was discovered while they were carrying out a controlled explosion

Video footage taken by one of the crew pans down the snake’s enormous body – which measures one metre in diameter.

After making the frightening discovery, the workers chained the animal to a crane and later lifted it up to reveal its yellow spotted under belly – a move which was crit!cised in the comments when the clip was uploaded to YouTube.

It’s claimed the builders ki||ed the snake rather than leave it in its natural habitat but this has not been confirmed.

thers believe the animal may have d!ed in the explosion, possibly being hit by falling debris, as its head appeared flat in the video footage.

One user wrote: “I’m not sure this is real, but if it is, sh*me on these people for ki|ling it! A snake that big has probably been alive for a very long time now, just to be ki|led for a few pictures? What a waste.”

Some have crit!cised the workers for chaining up the massive reptile

 

They claim it looks like it has been ki|led

 

Others say it may have d!ed in the explosion having been hit by falling debris 

Another said: “Human be like ‘oh look a giant rare snake and it maybe the last species on this earth, so lets ki|| it and show it to the world’.”

The Guinness World Record for the longest snake in captivity is currently held by Medusa, a snake in Kansas City, US, which measures 25 feet 2in long.
