It's Brazil, on the full image which this is a crop from you can see a label identifying the Brazilian telco whose rack it is.

Sadly for those of us with TEA tendencies there won't be any cheap gear going. To me it looks like it's near the end of shedding its skin. I would imagine that shucking off one's whole skin is an exhausting process and, poikilotherm that it is, it's found somewhere nice and warm for a quick kip to recoup its strength before finishing the job. At very first glance I thought that the shed skin was one of those knitted braidings used to bundle cables together.

Looks like a comms rack to me, particularly it looks like one of those that tends to turn up with a hodge-podge of different kit at a point-of-presence which, especially with there being a photo of it, suggests that some engineer on a call out for a fault or an install got a big surprise.
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

Is that a danger noodle or a harmless noodle? (Given it's aussie I'm guessing deadly noodle)

That’s clearly a lesser spotted fibre munching noodle.

So did I. I wonder if it thinks some of the other cables are sleeping snakes.
