A GIANT python weighing about 100 kg, earlier spotted at a rubber estate in Jeli, Kelantan was the biggest caught by state civil defence force officers this year.

Kelantan civil defence force director Zainuddin Hussin said the six-metre long python was caught in Kampung Lawar on June 3.

"Civil defence force officers went to the estate after receiving information from few rubber tappers who spotted the huge snake in the area.

"Many of the tappers were afraid to go out to work as they were afraid of being attacked by the non-venomous snake," he said.

From January to last month, Zainuddin said a total 7,740 snakes were caught by the force in the state.

Kota Baru recorded the highest number with 2,180, followed by Bachok (834) and Tanah Merah (766).

All of this snakes have been handed over to the state wildlife department.
