well, one of my staff took a few days vacation and went to his hometown....
guess what he brought me back when reporting for duty...
a 2 footer retic python.... who is good in eating small mouse :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

if i did not take it, the poor slider will end up in the garbage bag and will be dumped in the waste pit...
i have no choice but to keep it for the mean time until the zoo take it from me...

thanks...ya...my family is safe...

poaching and carrying such wild life animals is prohibited by law and if you are caught
carrying it without permit or clearance, you will be arrested and the items will be confiscated...

Was the reticulated python in Bohol 30 feet long? I thought it was at least 20 feet.

Not friendly is an understatement.....vicious is more like it.....I'd grow that sucker out & make a pair of boots out of it...... :evil:

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

In New Brunswick (our neighbouring province)last year a python got loose from its enclosure one night on the second floor of a house, made its way downstairs and killed a 4 year old boy and a 6 year old boy while they slept. Tragic story. I believe it was a rock Python though.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Is the python wild caught or captive bred?
