In 1984, an elderly Florida woman was viciously attacked by a 9-foot python that crawled through the local sewer system and into her toilet bowl.

She was bitten on the arse(of course) and fell down onto the bathroom floor. Three weeks later my older brother Jimmy(who was 12 at the time) walked past her home and noticed a sickening smell. He told my dad who thenĀ calledĀ the police.

Long story short-my brother Jimmy now works at a local pizza shop in Wilmington. He's a good guy

ooooh--- When we lived in Guam on Air Force base back in the early 90's, I was bitten by a brown tree snake while at the beach. NO adult had reported a snake bite there in years, only babies/infants cause the buggers would latch on and not let go.  Not posionous venom normally, but would hurt the little ones 'cause they sucked on them so long and could cause heart trouble when the venom circulated.

   Anyway, after my incident, there were LOTS more snake sightings (that is only breed that has made it to the previously snake-free island). The priest who lived across the street from us had one come up through his toilet--he was Philippino so hacked it to death with a machete--after that we all got machetes!

FYI:  that's why Hawaii is so frantic to stay snake-free:  Guam has lost most of it's beautiful tropical birds cause the snakes eat the eggs.  Then, cause no birds, the flowering trees don't get properly pollinated, no seed dispersal thru bird dropping leading to another ecological disaster!!  Guam won't bring in mongooses (mongeese??? LOL) for fear they'll disrupt the eco-system even more.
