satyam — now the boys decided that it was in fact a living python; arka-kara-āraktam — appearing like the sunshine; uttarā-hanuvat ghanam — on the cloud resembling the upper lips; adharā-hanuvat — resembling the lower lips; rodhaḥ — big bank; tat-praticchāyayā — by the reflection of sunshine; aruṇam — reddish.
Thereafter they decided: Dear friends, this is certainly an animal sitting here to swallow us all. Its upper lip resembles a cloud reddened by the sunshine, and its lower lip resembles the reddish shadows of a cloud.
