In these pictures, I’m sure it’s not a snake, and I don’t know what it is. Snakes are reptiles, so their skin must be different. The animal in the photo belongs to the eel or catfish family.”
“According to my research, there is no freshwater snake like the one described above. There is also no snake named Trau snake. And if Hoang snake is another type of snake, not this one.
Maybe this is just information about likes and views on ѕoсіаɩ networks , so the image is not accurate. Today’s technology can also edit, so people should not believe in the above images, “said Luong.

Responding to PV VTC News , Mr. Pham Van Toan, a snake trader and trader for many years in the Northern region also said: “There is no snake like this picture. much smaller and shorter than this animal. Its body is round and its һeаd is also of a different shape.”

However, in my opinion that story is fictional because I have never met many years of trading in this profession. the snake animal that looks like an eel , I haven’t even heard of this animal.
