Seven anacondas from the Sri Lankan zoo had a firsthand experience of just how hot it can get in the city, when the crate carrying the snakes had to be kept in an Indian airport’s import cargo clearance area after arrival — awaiting clearance from customs and quarantine officials.

The snakes were sealed in special transport cases and flown from Colombo that arrived a little after 3.30 pm.

However, they were made to wait in the extremely humid cargo floor till after 5.10 pm for the officials to arrive and sign off.

The Green Anacondas were bound for the Thiruvananthapuram Zoo and were part of a barter deal with the Dehiwala Zoo in Colombo. “
