Most of us have gone to the zoo before and at the zoo, even if we cannot stand the snakes there is always that pull to go and see them. There are some places that have pythons that are 12 to 18 feet long. In my mind he wasn’t pretty, in fact my thinking is that the only good snake to me is a dead one.

They said at the zoo the only way a python kills it’s victims is not with it’s venom or it’s mouth. The python will wait in a tree for it’s victim to walk underneath. Then it will drop down and wrap around the body of the victim. When the victim exhales, that old snake will tighten a little bit more until the victim cannot expand its capacity to get air. Because it is unable to get its breath the victim dies of suffocation.
