The meter reader and the two large snakes
METER READER – An employee of a electric company took to social media wherein he posted a video of his run-in with two enormous snakes while en route to work in Brgy. Boac in Maybo, Marinduque.
Snakes are fascinating creatures that have captured the attention of humans for centuries. With over 3,000 different species, they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, each with their unique characteristics.
Snakes are known for their impressive hunting abilities. Depending on the species, they may use venom to subdue their prey or constrict them to death. Some snakes, such as cobras and rattlesnakes, are capable of delivering deadly venom with a single bite, making them a fear-inducing predator.
However, not all snakes are dangerous to humans. In fact, many species are harmless and play important roles in their ecosystems. They help control rodent populations and serve as prey for larger animals such as birds of prey and large mammals. Despite their fearsome reputation, snakes are not to be feared but respected. They are essential to the balance of nature, and without them, the food chain would be disrupted, causing ecological imbalances.
Speaking of which, on March 16, 2023, at around 9:43 a.m. in Maybo, Boac, Marinduque, MARELCO Meter Reader Mr. Arnold M. Pearoyo came across two sizable snakes that appeared to be playing on the road.
They immediately started taking images and films as a warning to everyone, particularly the Member-Consumer-Owners, to be cautious on the streets they pass by, particularly now that the weather is hot and there is a risk that snakes will come out and seek shades somewhere cooler.
