Thissss should help you relax.
A zoo in the Philippines is allowing visitors to lie down and have giant, 20-foot long snakes piled on top of them. They’re called python massages, and apparently they’re quite relaxing (even though the snakes weigh a collective 550 pounds). But there’s a few, you know, caveats we have with the whole thing.
For one, The Week reports that visitors are told not to breathe too heavily or SCREAM FOR HELP before the massages because their cries could upset the snakes, causing them to constrict and painfully squeeze their
victims participants. But the risk of this happening is pretty slim, as each python is fed 10 chickens before the massage begins, to help tame those killer instincts.
But one participant in the video above seemed to enjoy it.
“This is actually a good massage. They’re actually massaging my core and it’s not too heavy,” he began. “Except for the snake trying to constrict my neck, it’s actually quite comfortable.”
So if you don’t mind the pythons periodically trying to kill you, this is a pretty awesome experience.
