    I am soooo glad that Mr Snake was a pet. I was afraid when I read the title :D I hope he likes his new house. What type of snake is he?

    So, his name's Murray and he's a darling? :D J/K
    He looks pretty big, is growth constrained by the environment? Will he have a growth spurt now he's in a bigger house, or is he already fully grown? (you can tell I know nothing about snakes...) Could he squeeze you to death as you sleep? :Paranoid:

    A lot of people are afraid of snakes.

    Every one is afraid of some thing,pythons are not poisonous but some will strike thinking it's food or are just aggressive snakes.

    He does look pretty big! How many kgs? Must be at least 3-4kg right?
    The new Taj Mahal looks pretty impressive. You could probably get a partner for Mr Snake and still have room to spare.
    And yes for the record, I would be freaked out if I saw that in someone's front yard! :wired:

    Kinda curious - what do you feed him?

    I'm squeamish when it comes to animals eating each other (even rats), but I'd like to see the skin thing.
