Looks like a python or a boa? I lived in Indonesia for a couple of years as a child and we had a pet reticulated python in the classroom - the teacher used it as an incentive for doing well in class as if we did well we could hold it for a while

Imagine that happening in today's health and safety orientated world?!

Re: Fun Fair Shot

Your right Ian, I was told that it is a Carpet Python. Glad I didn't have to get too close to it, I don't like Snakes too much. It was shot using the ED 35-100.

And presumably if you didn't do well you got to hold it for a whole lot longer!
