I kept a friend's burmese python for him while he was out of the country.
I have an uncle who had a brother-in-law who owned a burmese (?) python (14.5 ft) (Now in the Little Rock Zoo), and I got to "help" feed it once.
I had a friend make a fake press pass for me on a mac, and I borrowed a home video camera ... and I snuck into Burma and hooked up with some students fighting the burmese government ... then I moved onto Somalia in the early days of the famine and fighting there.
There were at least two boa constrictors shown in that video along with burmese pythons.
Along with that, saying "python" when what you actually mean is a burmese python is like saying "dogs" are a problem when you mean "chihuahuas".
