    I don't think the kid is too dumb, for some people a largish snake latching onto you can be a bit scary. I blame the media for over publicising it and blowing it out of proportion.

    I think I read somewhere, either here or on the article, that he said he wouldn't clean the snake's tank?

    I feel sorry for the kid if he is on here and everyone here is laughing about it. Given the chance they may well have come on here and got some advice on how to get it off if it ever does go them again, but i somehow feel that they will be deleting their account right about now!

    when I read these articles I can make some sense as to why DEC put BHP's on a cat 4 licence here. That python will never be touched again if it isn't sold.

    Regardless if the reports are true a 1.5 metre BHP is strong but really not being able to unwind it from your arm with 2 people
    present makes me think that they are a bit scared of it and def needs some handling pointers.

    In his defense, a feeding response bite from a large BHP doesn't exactly tickle...

    exactly, something that should be handled by experienced people that know how to handle the larger pythons. In saying that though, south west carpets are cat 3 here and have the same potential to do the same. It all comes down to making the right choices for a first snake and not choosing the huge big one becuase it will impress their mates!

    If you think snake bites hurt get kicked in the balls, nothing hurts more. And don't anyone start with "childbirths worse" haven't met anyone that wants to get kicked in the nuts more than once!

    A large BHP is not 1.5 metres.
