There Are No Happy Endings With Python Massages

Who needs women with meaty hands when Burmese pythons are available for massages?

FEARLESS tourists are relaxing with massages – dished out by four giant Burmese pythons weighing a combined 250kg. Visitors to Cebu City Zoo in the Philippines can undergo the ssspa treatment from the snakes, which measure up to five metres long. Each python is fed 10 or more chickens prior to each massage, to curb any hunger pangs. And the treatment is free for those brave enough.

Now, how much do you tip a snake?
