I'm so glad I didn't have to scan this into the computer (whole lot of annoying if you ask me) since I'd already done so last year. Here's a picture of hubby and I holding an albino python like in the story Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen.
Snakes in general scare me but I've held quite a few pythons over the years and my uncle actually owned a few. Some were quite gentle like the one above, others you had to have a second person holding it too but all of them you should be wary with. The have no teeth but they can squeeze you to death. I believe that pic was taken in 2004 and although you can't see it very well both of my hands are touching the snake (she had wrapped the end of her tail around my side).
