Re: Owning large pythons alone.

I think I remember seeing some ratio of impending constrictor-induced asphyxiation like for every 8' of snake, you need one person. Not sure if this is 100% accurate, but seems reasonable. I have a 6.5' boa. *If* she wanted to, I'll bet she could hurt me. I am extremely cautious when handling her and never do it when home alone. Not that my wife would try to uncoil her from my neck, but she most likely would dial 911. I'd be dead before first responders showed up, but at least they could corroborate the story of my demise for the life insurance policy...
