We recently encountered a second python in our yard. It was only about four feet long and probably one and one-half inches thick. Fortunately, this wasn’t like the eight foot long, three inch thick one I encountered before.

If people are going to keep these exotic snakes they should be willing to assume responsibility for them, just as you would for an aggressive dog. I don’t want or like them in my yard. Unfortunately, this one will not be going home either.
