I want particularly close and I won't be doing it again!

All good experience though and a learning opportunity.

My biggest concern was not knowing the snake yet so I could not begin to predict how she would react but by and large so long as the end with the bitey but full of sharp things was kept under control I was pretty confident I'd be ok.

It's a good example of why two people should be present with large snakes though. No way I could have done it safely if it was a 10'+ animal.
Theory is when you know everything but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but you do not know why. Often these happen together, nothing works and nobody knows why. - Arihato
