    according to a different report i saw it was a "5ft Blackheaded Python", and i dont doubt his arm was changing colour, it sounds like the boy doesnt "know" pythons that well, and I wouldnt be surprised if he was shaking his arm to get it off, so the poor python held on tighter, One of my Darwins at the age of 7mths turned my fingers blue she was hanging on so tight, and she wasnt even biting me, just scared she was going to fall i think.
    No doubt he was scared, hence the ambulance that his poor mum no doubt called. even if we think it was amusing

    keep an eye on the 'sale' ads, there is probably a cheap BHP about to be adverised :lol:

    apparently hasn't learnt much then..... why didn't he just come on here and start a thread titled 'help my snake's trying to eat me' oh, and he would have to get mum to take a photo and upload it, cos we all know the golden rule........ pics or it didnt happen
