Reaper  - This is Reaper, an approximately 3 year ball python. Right now she's on a so far two month hunger strike, so hope she'll start eating soon.

Here's Reaper looking like she can live up to her name lol. She's an absolute sweetheart though, has never done any harm.

you're lucky to be in Australia. If I was there I would be out herping all day :) Do you see alot of snakes? In the states there's only I believe 3 species thats venomous, the rattle, copperhead and coral snake. What kind of pythons does your friend have?

Actually the water moccasins are venomous here in the states as well. There is also the cottonmouth that you left out. I have no fear of snakes, just because I understand them. I would rather have a snake in my house than a mouse. It makes me mad when people swerve to hit the snakes yet feel bad if they run over a rabbit or a squirrel. They are all God's creatures.
