Python Sanctuary 

The Python Sanctuary is home for some of the country’s rescued wildlife. It serves as a safe space for different animals, which includes monkeys, lizards, and different sorts of tropical birds. It formerly held the largest python captivity in the world that has a weight of 595 pounds, and 28 feet long. A sanctuary is also a place for learning, especially to those who are interested in the wildlife. 

The Python Sanctuary is situated 6 kilometers away from the city of Tagbilaran. It is currently located in the town of Baclayon, Bohol, which is divided into 17 barangays with an area of 3,442 hectares. Baclayon, was the first ever municipality that was established in Bohol, since it was first founded by the Spaniards in 1595. Originally, the town was called Bacayon, from its root word Bacay which means to detour. People used to take the shortcut around a rocky cliff instead of taking the way over the cliff going to the town proper. 

The Phyton Sanctuary is a learning environment where students and tourists can enjoy their walk around the mini zoo, while at the same time nurturing their knowledge about the ins and outs of the wildlife. The sanctuary shows the value of animal protection and preservation. More than the wildlife, the sanctuary also offers cakes and pastries made by their locals that tourists will surely enjoy.
