Pythonadipsis, he had sold them before he died and they were floating around for a while.

I saw some of them and apparently they had been bred but that was also about 2 years ago since I last saw them.

They are very cannibalistic and rather fast when hot. They like a nice hotspot and then chase down prey rather rapidly when you put it in.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
