A subtle little pagan message sent over from "the other side", i reckon. For xmas.

- you ain't got it all your way, you smug little christian and other god-bothering goblins
we were swallowing you whole for breakfast long before you ever sat down to your first christmas turkey.
Keep this new respect thing going - or we will start snacking seriously all over again!

chuckle
Fab that this python hit the headlines. Change is happening.
Not long ago this bloke would have just quietly slithered away into somebody's cooking pot.
Xmas gift story for me.

Looks like a Burmese Python given the body size and markings. Could explain a few missing dogs i bet lol.

Looks like he last ate a while ago, but maybe not quite ready for a dog or another goblin just yet.
That 'fatness' around his lower middle is probably a mid-late stage digested meal moving through his system.
- And it wasn't a rat or a pet pussy cat by the look of its the size. Dog, small christian child, something like that probably.
The prey is usually more defined and lumpy when seen further up.

Best thing i'll see today. I must be a pagan - i feel an urge to worship the beast.
