Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Good news about Mewan Jon. I'm pleased for you.

My word, those carpet pythons can grow to 9ft in length! (certain species). (Like Charmion I looked it up.) Luckily they're not venomous, but I imagine a nasty bite could become infected. Haven't the Antipodes got an enormous selection of venomous/dangerous stuff? Snakes, spiders, Portuguese Men-O'-War, great white sharks etc.

Have to say though, they are rather beautiful, but NOT in bedrooms!
It's funny but a silly UK house spider has me screaming for help, but snakes in W Africa, even very venomous ones, have never freaked me out.
Obviously I've been wary of them for safety, but I have no snake phobia.

I wonder how SmokeyPokey and Murphy would react to a carpet python? They really enjoyed prodding and tormenting poor Hissing Sid, the very long grass snake, in the garden of our last house.
