Garden Helper

Post by Balinbear on 2nd April 2015, 21:43

A young fella (I assume but he may be a female as I did not quite ask him to lift his tail to check) who helps keep the vermin down in the garden.

Earlier he was sitting in some branches when I was trimming back some stuff and I was holding onto the branch right beside him. I turned my head and we were face to face about 300mm away from each other. He looked and I looked and I lost the staring competition. Later he was down on the ground under the shrub when I took the photo.

Like most pythons nothing seem to upset him too much.

What do you do with it? Does it live in your garden?

Is it just a by passer?

Do you call the council's pet division to come and pick the ****** up.. Gosh I can't even say its name I am very very scered!!!

Are you immune to it?

Hehe Alya, they're not poisonous. They kill their victims by constriction, so they're good for keeping the vermin population down but no danger to us.

A very big snake might take a very small dog though. Or young chickens. That's the only worry, really.

Yeah they are not dangerous at all. The can grow quite large. We have had them 3 metres and longer. They generally hang around for a few weeks and disappear though we had one that would come and live in the roof of our shed every winter.

Mitch (our son) had had a tough fight with this one but eventually won after about 25minutes and kept it's skin as a trophy.

I kept it in the bathroom , but it used to get out of there by flatting itself to get under the door.......soon rectified that.....

Mitch is 6 foot 2 inches and he is holding the head end up and the tail is bent onto the floor so I recon it would be about 2.3 metres.

I can't even look at the pictures to be honest.. I have always had this extreme fear of those animals the spiders....

I just don't know what to say seeing Mitch handling one...I am just too scared of them I see Mitch inthe picture holding one even if it is the skin only

As far as I am concerned Mitch is a true a gentle Giant!
