Author's notes

I have had visits from a much larger python, this one was only about 1.3m in length and as the photo shows it is quite slender. I watched it for about 1/2hr but then had to go out. It explored the deck and looked like it was heading to the roof.

Nice to have a snake visitor you can think "wow" rather than "uh-oh" about.
