    Well I live in Australia and it had to happen sooner or later.

    I went to our local wildlife park and it was a relatively quiet day there so the reptile keeper dropped a whopping big Red Bellied Funnel Back (AKA Black Headed Python) on my shoulders.

    There was brief struggle but it killed me several times (one of the many times I have met my death!) :)

    Eat your heart out Alice Cooper! :fisticuffs

    Well I did get a photo of a Tassie Devil - so close :)

    He was lazing by the pool after eating a few tourists :)

    Do you like your cricket as well!

    I didn't expect to catch a snake while I was wearing it:)

    I sure do. Plenty of snakes over here too - over here we actually tie five to each leg and use them as pads during cricket season... Gray Nicholls and Kookaburra is a bit expensive and lah-tee-dah for guys like me.

    You're lucky you found the one single snake not out to kill you there!

    I got to handle a 176 lbs 15 foot python in Greece last summer, now that was exciting.

    The python will ambush you and kill you so efficiently. It is not a pet.
