Putao map

Location of Putao in Burma

The Bu-Rin is a giant snake of Southeast Asia, reported near Putao, Myanmar (Burma). It is an aquatic snake which has been known to be quite aggressive, and has been known to attack swimmers and small boats.

Physical description

It is a giant snake with lengths of 40–50 feet.

Possible explanation

Probably a species of python, as some Southeast Asian pythons have lengths recorded at 30-60 ft. Snakes are also notoriously hard to accurately measure and it is worth noting that a measured Bu-Rin very likely would be incorrect to some level.
