3-meter python found in Aravan

AKIPRESS.COM - A 3-meter dead python was discovered by local people in Aravan, a district in Osh region that bothers with Uzbekistan.

Locals assume that the snake might come from Uzbekistan. The python was found near the water canal in Fergana on the border with Uzbekistan.
