Oh wow. Did it die? Im sorry to dissagree with you but I think Its a wonderfull looking snake.
I dont think thats a python though. Im leaning townards anaconda. Dependong on how close that guy is to the water. Anacondas have teeth that point back. If you are bitten by one and pull foward to get your self free it will do alot of damage. See how his teeth hook back. Im not totaly sure what it is but thats my guess.
I love snakes. want one but hubby is not so fond of them and i dont want to bring something home that will totaly freak him out.
The thing that Bugs me the most is they cut it open after. What is the sence of that? I dought they are keeping the skin and i dought they are going to eat it. So why cut it up and take the pictures? Im sure he knew what he was eating. to me that just seems wrong I mean the guy died already.
I guess i can see killing it to save your sheep, that does bug me a little but I couldnt kill anyting anyway thats just me, But i dont see why they take pictures and chop it open.
