Mysterious giant tracks appeared overnight on Friday (December 14) on Koh Mai Pai (Bamboo Island, just north of Phi Phi), emerging from the forest, going through the local school and then into the sea, leaving students, parents and teachers worrying that they were made by some enormous serpent.



I like to hear what hunters and rangers from UM have to say about this one.

I am not inclined to believe that the tracks are anything out of the natural world as the track does not fit the natural movement of known serpents and/or crocodiles. It seems that there is a complete lack of drag marks on the so called track and it looks almost mechanical/vehicular in nature notice the evenly spaced circular imprints. IF this were a heavy serpent as they are claiming there would be drag marks and no distinguisable imprints as with any other snake trail. I am also certain that it is not a crocodile. As with serpents trails, crocodile also drag their bodies along accompanied by footprints.. i am not seeing any distinguisable footprints in the photo provided.

In my opinion, the tracks  seem too much unnatural. I mean i could be wrong, but it looks like it was man-made
Although, i'm no serpent expert

It's Godzilla obviously.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Snake locamation in relation to structure,ecology, and evolution. Being of large size straight or linear progression would fit as seen in Bitis artietans. But looking at the tracks left by what would be where the ventrals scales would be, we can see this is not made by a snake using linear progression movement. So no this would not be a snake track.

We know almost exactly how many stars exist in our milkway but we have no idea of how many species living on our plant.

Lack of drag is the main thing for me, definitely not a serpent

the way to fake that would be to have a specially made Fat motorcycle tire( like those on a honda big red)  lay down the tracks, the problems with doing it that way would be 1) it would require loosening the dirt in a line  so the tire can make such a perfect track  and 2) this work along with  the cycles noise would require  many people knowing about it.  having said that i have no idea what could have done it.

I don't understand why there would be imprints if the serpent would be sliding over the ground. I call hoax.

It definitely looks man-made to me. If it was a serpent or a snake-like creature, there wouldn't be clear marks since the body would be dragging itself. There are so footprints to suggest legs and feet being used. And I imagine no snake or serpent has those kinds of scales on their belly though I could be wrong. I'm not snake expert.

Looks more like tire tracks to be honest.

Thumbs down on this one. :td:
