Calling it a New World python is technically incorrect - though it was once grouped with them, it really isn't part of Pythonidae, and using that common name creates confusion.
I know this, but to those who are looking for more info because they have never heard of such an animal, it is good to offer other used common names. They may not be Pythonidae, but most do consider it a boid.
Just keep walking and ignore the monkeys...
