    i thought it was a slipper!

    i woke up this morning rather early, and still suffering the effects of maybe 1 chang to many. opened the curtains and for some bizarre reason, i was wondering why my missus had stuffed her slipper between the grill and mozzy screen on the window. after prodding it for a while and trying to move it, i went to make a coffee and thought nothing else of it. when the missus asked me to go to the shop, i walked over to grab my hat and what i thought was her slipper was actually a fecking python....she/he is still there whilst i am writing this!

    I found one (about 2 meters long) in the garden last week. Being a good sort, I utilized my finely-honed snake handling technique to pick him up and remove him to the surrounding jungle before my dogs found and ate him.

    Nasty bastard bit me - ungrateful reptilian shit. No good turn goes unpunished.

    Dogs thought he was delicious.

    A beautiful creature. Scream for what reason? I am sure the snake would scream back. * Sigh*. What is it with people and Ophidiophobia? Wonderful things as long as they don't swallow your pets. Snake cuisine has its merits too. Quite delightful.

    They are pretty snakes. Over the years, we've had a few grace our snake house/cage, but they don't take well to being handled - that might be different if caught very young, or bred in captivity, but all I've encountered tend to give a nasty bite.

    About seven years ago, when there were fewer houses and more jungle around, one was captured crossing the road in front of my house, having just dined on three of the neighbor's chickens. This big fella measured out at almost exactly 8 meters - a village record which still stands. As more houses have gone up over the years, the pythons are smaller and I see fewer of them. I also have gone quite happily for about a year without seeing a cobra.

    It is stunning. I want to pat it and make its tongue groove around my wrist. Get a towel. Cover its head. Gently pry it from the windowsill. Pm for an address and I will pick it up. Lovely thing it is.

    Visited the "Snake House" to take a picture of a large rattlesnake at a small university in the Midwest of the USA.

    The snake was massive. I was told they tend to grow larger in captivity.

    To give me a better picture without reflection, the professor lifted the glass front of the cage that was sitting on a three-foot high table and told me not to come any closer than about three feet from the snake.

    I knew what he meant, and crouched to my knee to get the photo, and when it struck, it was the size of my arm with my outstretched hand resembling its wide open mouth, and it was right in my face, just a few inches shy.

    I don't remember if it was an Eastern Diamondback, but this fcker was huge. I have big arms and the top half of that animal was heavy and "lightning quick," and the bottom half that anchored the strike to prevent him falling from the cage just seemed to get thicker as it disappeared into its coil. It had to weigh thirty pounds.

    Apparently, they strike and release, then follow the scent for the meal.

    It has found an obviously comfortable place and if its a female may lay eggs. Give it a little spray on the head with some water as its probably feeling a tad dehydrated. Understand snakes, they really are wonderful. It likes you already. Give it some love.

    she/he does seem to be comfortable and not bothered when i go to check on it. hasn't moved much really and thought it maybe digesting some food. will wait till the morning and if it's still there will try to coax it out, and see if i can get it into the field next to us.

    Do not be fooled by the slippery bastards apparent lack of movement.
    It is the calm before the storm.

    When it goes dark, pythons listen for the gentle snorring of manfolk.
    Then they flick out their tongues to get the whereabouts of your bollocks, before delivering a mouthfull of fang into your knackersack.

    8 out of 10 dissected pythons are found to contain human testicles.
