This is the shocking moment villagers capture a massive 20ft python metres away from a house.
Porntip Rasksasil, 54, was clearing the grass at the back of his home to plant banana trees when he found the creature in Chonburi, Thailand on March 1.
The 20ft-long reptile slithered slowly among the leaves and tried to escape so he rushed to call his neighbours for help.
In a video taken by one of the villagers, it shows eight people struggling to corner the wild serpent after it sneaked back to a hole in the ground.
Six people are seen pulling the snake's tail in unison in a desperate bid to capture it.
The group managed to grab the heavyweight python out and transferred it to a cage made of steels wires and wood.
They called the animal rescuers to retrieve the snake so they could release it in the forest far from the village.
It is said that the python weighed a whopping 100kg (220lbs) and measured 20 feet long.
The farmer said he had first spotted the snake three days before it was caught (February 25) but it quickly fled.
He said: "I already saw it before but it was gone before I had the chance to catch it.
"I did not know then that it was that big because I only had a glimpse because it was too fast."
Despite the huge snake being taken away, the farmer added he still worried as it may have an equally enormous mate hiding nearby.
He said "I think the snake has a wife somewhere because it had a nest. It wouldn't nest here if it can't mate.
"I've never seen a snake this big before! It looked like it was out of a movie. I couldn't believe my eyes."
