The legal maximum is 18.

More seriously, the guy seems unhinged. As someone who is passionately opposed to unnecessary mistreatment of the earth's fellow creatures, I am very saddened by this act of cruelty.

When it comes to evolution, we have a long way to go.

This is totally beside the point as the bounty is on escaped or intentionally released much larger pythons pythons living in the wild which are thriving in the warmer southern extremes of Florida. A ball python is much to small usually not exceeding four feet in length and would not present a threat to a full grown housecat let alone a human and is noted for its docile disposition. I suppose the snake killer is now the snake owner's ex-friend.

I have handled snakes many a time and been nipped a few times by nonvenomous snakes and the pain was far from excrutiating and in most cases almost nonexistent. Large pythons or boas can inflict painful bites as can the common watersnake found in the U.S. If I were bitten by a large nonvenomous snake, I still wouldn't kill it. Someting tells me that snakes scare the digestive waste out of you. I think they are marvelous creatures and most people who get bitten by venomous snakes are people who wouldn't leave them alone. Snakes almost never bite unless startled or disturbed. Leave them alone and they are more than glad to reciprocate.

I remeber being at the house of a snake lover who had Scarlet kingsnakes he was trying to pass off as coral snakes. After lokking at them a few times, I called his bluff as the order of the color bands was different than a coral snake as in red next to yellow can kill a fellow and red next to black won't hurt you Jack. I now can tell them apart without even thinking about that rhyme. A neighbor had a coral snake in his shed which I captured by pinning its head down with a smal garden spade in one hand while holding on to its tail with the other hand, and the neighbor put on a heavy pair of gloves and grabbed it and put it in a bucket and covered it. It was a rather large spcimen close to three feet in length, but it never acted aggressively. He let it go in the nearby forest where presumably it lived happily ever after far enough away from civilization. Believe me, it was the real thing with the wider red and black bands separated by more narrow yellow bands. Here is another rhyme that works with telling a harmless mimic from the Coral Snake. Head of red, go ahead. Head of black, stay back. This rhyme does not necessarily hold true for varieties of the coral snake found outside of the U.S.

a constrictor bites to hold so it can do exactly that constrict , this isn't a bite to deter , but a bite to feed , and the idea is that a foreign animal can change ecology in a heart beat

so it isn't a just a small snake , the African bee is small
