Zoo Offers Giant Python Massage
Are you tired of feeling achy all the time? You’ve tried every possible type of massage and relaxation technique imaginable, and you still can’t find a cure for your sore muscles and persistent tension? A snake massage might be just the thing for you, then.
The Cebu City Zoo in Philippines offers a special treat for visitors who are willing to make a donation to the zoo. Every zookeeper will tell you that it costs a lot of money to run a zoo, with all the special needs different animals have. So the management of the Cebu City Zoo has decided to offer something a little special in an attempt to attract donators.
Every person who makes a donation is offered a unique massage, performed by pythons. Yes, you read that right. Giant snakes are literally massaging your entire body. Not one snake, but several of them at the same time.
These masseuse-snakes can be up to 16 feet long and, combined, they weigh some 530 pounds. Of course, the recipient of the massage does not have to endure all 530 pounds at once and on the same spot. The pythons wiggle and move all over your body so the mass is distributed, providing a thorough and deep muscle massage.
Those who have tried the python massage say that at first they were a bit apprehensive, if not downright terrified, but once they managed to relax, they found it quite enjoyable.
Still, most people prefer to just make a donation and skip the massage.
