Where? These snakes aren't all that unusual, you can find them around the edges of the capital.

Burmese Python, if memory serves me correctly they have that distinctive V shape marking on their heads.
Edit to add: I always thought they were quite docile and made good pets.... bit like a giant version of a corn snake. Obviously, to be handled with due respect for their size.
Carpet Pythons, on the other hand, while smaller bodied and shorter in length are far more aggressive.

That seems to be the most obvious difference between it and the Reticulated Python which just has a few dark thin lines on its head. As far as I know most people are superstitious about messing around with these large snakes which harbor Neak Ta, so they won't harm them. Obviously there are plenty of wildlife traders who think differently though.
