The video shows an Indian rock python, about two-metres-long, crawling on the busy street in Kochi. WHat was heartening to see was that while the reptile crossed the rodad, traffic on the usually busy stretch halted and people allowed the snake to cross in peace. As per news reports, the reptile took almost five minutes to cross and reach the other side of the road.
The viral video elicited myriad reactions from netizens. While some made jokes and pondered if the python had overeaten and therefore taking so long to cross, many netizens praised the people for waiting for the repltile to cross, without disturbing it.
