The video shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Services (IFS) official Susanta Nanda shows a python from its tail to head. 

IFS Nanda captioned the video: The longest & one of the heaviest snakes of planet. A Reticulated Python climbs the wall to reach out for its prey in Myanmar.

Further, the caption read: Reticulated Python are constrictors and kill prey by squeezing them to death. The python's squeezing force is about 14 PSI enough to kill human beings.

Reticulated python species are native to south and southeast Asia. This python species is the world’s longest snake and also among the heaviest. Though these are non-venomous constrictors, they pose a threat to living organisms as they can squeeze them to death.
