So I went to the local pet shop today and fell in love with a Burmese Python. Regardless of the $300 dollar price tag I had my heart set on it. So the employee working at the time had him out and was handling him well. He then asked if I would like to hold him, which I was excited to do. I don't think I supported him enough since he thrashed around and then bit me. Must say that experience combined with him being able to grow up to 15 feet changed my mind about getting a Albino Burmese Python.
