London: A zoo in the Philippines is offering deep muscle ‘python massage’ to people who make a donation to their organization.
Visitors to Cebu City Zoo experiences can enjoy the alternative massage, delivered by four large five metres longpythons, weighing a combined 250kg, who are placed across the body.
“We are changing the zoo into an interactive one,” Cebu City Zoo Manager Giovanni Romarate says in a YouTube video explaining the back story of the python massage
Before the massage begins, visitors are warned not to breathe too heavily because heavy breathing could upset the snake and cause it to squish the person to death during the massage.
TheÂ massageÂ is a serious business and had been offered at the zoo before but is now back on popular demand.
ZooÂ manager Giovanni Romarate said that though the visitors do feel fear at first, guests generally like it when they try it out.
