    Another Python

    A couple of months back I posted about a large Python that was stealing chickens from the house next door.
    Despite it all happening in the dead of night I got a verbal bashing because of the lack of pictures.
    Well I hope to make amends now although with a much smaller Python.
    I assume this is a Python, please shout if you identify because the only thing I know about snakes is that it's safer to run when you see one.

    The snake had just eaten two chickens and was trapped in the chicken house.
    The owner is holding the door shut to keep him in .

    His head has been tied up with rope.
    Not big as Pythons go, but would make a few handbags.

    Python kills zoo keeper, tries to eat him

    An Asian python has killed a Venezuelan college student. (Getty)

    PHOTOS: Man nearly eaten by snake





    A 3m Burmese Python killed a student zookeeper in Caracas on the weekend and was caught trying to swallow its dead human prey when horrified co-workers arrived, Venezuela's El Universal newspaper has reported.
    The other employees of the Caracas zoo had to beat the serpent to make it release the body of 29-year-old Erick Arrieta, whose head it was swallowing.
    According to the daily, Arrieta had been working the nightshift alone on Saturday, looking after the reptile section of the zoo.
    The university biology student had broken the park's rules by entering the cage holding the snake, which had been donated two months ago and was not on public display, according to the zoo's management.
    A snake bite on his arm indicated the python had attacked Arrieta before wrapping itself around him and crushing him to death.
    "The young man underestimated the animal's instinct," said the director general of the Parque del Este zoo, Javier Hernandez.

    Both species can be quite aggressive I would guess, but like most snakes, only when confronted. Reticulated are longer (longest snakes in the world reaching about 9-10 metres) but the Burmese can get to a good 7 metres too.

    I don't think you need telling keeping a safe distance from them both is a wise move.

    A snake dealer has been located now and it will be sold to him.
    Price, I am told, is 50 baht per kilo.
    Hopefully the loss of two chickens will not make it worth while.
    I don't want him to start attracting the buggers because it is literally next door.

    I thought that the Burmese python was now a protected species in Thailand.

    Just done a few internet searches, and yes indeed, Python molarus bivittatus is indeed a protected species here in Thailand.
