How did that get there?!
Brazilian construction workers were blown away when this slithering serpent wound up on their site.
The snake was reportedly 33 feet long and weighed 400 kilograms. Workers were forced to use a crane to lift it out of the construction site so they could get back to work.
The videos received backlash from people who saw the snake was chained down during the removal process.
“I’m not sure this is real, but if it is, shame on these people for killing it! A snake that big has probably been alive for a very long time now, just to be killed for a few pictures?? What a waste…'” one user wrote.
It is unclear whether the snake was killed during the removal process.
The current Guinness Book of World Record holder for largest snake in captivity is Medusa, a 25-foot long snake in Kansas City.
