    PMSL... Harrowing... Not venemous... Forced back into its tank! For a 1.5m python to send his arm black with the loss of circulation it must be a fair thickness of snake as an Antaresia fully grown wouldn't be capable of that I would think. Also mustn't have much experience if they (15yo and his mum) couldn't unwrap the snake before paramedics arrived.

    What a pizzer of a media beat up! :lol:

    The other article Jax posted makes it a little better at least it was a BHP which can put some decent pressure on but still... 15yo with his first snake and panicked hardly worth a 000 call. And if he needs it to go to a good home where his enclosure will be cleaned regularly I'll take the little stunner in a heart beat!

    It's just lucky for all of us that responsible journalism has brought this horror story to the public's attention.......those damn pythons are always plotting and scheming. Remember 'Snakes On A Plane'? COME ON PEOPLE, WAKE UP!! Right this moment your legless villians may be twirling their proverbial moustaches and planning your demise...one bite at a time :twisted:

    And this people is why it is irresponsible of you to tell teenagers BHP's are ideal first snakes! :lol:

    I'm still struggling with this one given how placid bhp's are as a rule, wonder what size feeds he is giving it...and I can picture the near death experience stories they will tell their family and friends after this. A whole new generation of snake phobics coming to a Melbourne suburb near you. :twisted:

    Must be a very slow news day. And if the paramedics found this harrowing, they shouldn't be paramedics. I can't imagine how they'd handle an actual injury :rolleyes:

    You better ask for a Rabies shot while you're there Pretzels... or ring for an ambulance incase you feint behind the wheel from the shock of your harrowing experience and blood loss. :lol:
