Facebook user Santiago Monteverde, who posted photos of the actual catch early Sunday morning, said the reticulated python entered a house located along Bajada Street near the office of the National Bureau of Investigation just across Victoria Plaza mall.

The uploader said the snake was about 10 feet long.

What happened to the python after captivity was unknown. However, commenters said rescue personnel usually turn snakes over to the Davao Crocodile Park or a concerned government agency like the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Reticulated pythons are the world's longest snakes and longest reptile. According to a Wikipedia entry, their natural diet includes mammals and occasionally birds; small ones eat mainly rodents such as rats. In near human habitation, they are known to snatch stray chickens.

Normally, this kind of snake do not attack humans, but will bite and possibly constrict if they feel threatened, or mistake a hand for food. While not venomous, large pythons can inflict serious injuries, sometimes requiring stitches, the online information source posted.
