    I'd be moving

    I have absolutely no idea where this is.... but, wherever this is, I would definitely move.

    Seems a sheep farmer was puzzled about the disappearance of some sheep on his farm. After a few weeks of sheep disappearing the farmer decided to put up an electric fence.

    About a week later, this is what he found!

    I'd need a bigger gun. Something with a lanyard I think.

    good greif!

    If my wife sees that, she may just move off the planet. (extreme hatred and fear of snakes)

    As for a holster, and boots, You could probably get a snakeskin, trench coat out of that thing. YIKES!

    Has anyone checked snopes yet?

    Indiana Jones doesn't hate snakes as much as I do! I was bit by a watermocassin on my grandfather's farm when I was 11. Not a nice experience. I won't even look at National Geographic unless somebody tears out the snake pictures first!

    Some of my best friends are reptiles!

    He is a pretty good size though. Wonder how many sheep were lost? That little fella should only need to eat a sheep about once every 3-6 months!

    just checked Snopes. It's TRUE.

    At least it's in South Africa, not the states.

    Talk about being freaked out. I came home from work and noticed my black labs going crazy. There was a a pine snake in the house. I swear it was at least 2 1/2 feet long. I threw a towel over it and tossed it outside.
    I hate snakes, but being in the middle of nowhere, they keep the rats and mice in check.

    Ok people, and now for the real bad news. If some sheep disappeared in a period of couple of weeks or more, the farmer has not caught all the culprits. A snake that big eating a sheep would take a couple of weeks to digest. So, or there is another type or predator or ... <shiver> there is more babies like that in his farm.

    Miggy, That's what I was thinking. That's why I asked how many and how long. Something as big as a sheep I'd still bet on months between meals as opposed to weeks.

    Just FYI: Florida now has a viable breeding population of Burmese Pythons. They've found them in the wild as large as 200lbs. People buy these when they're little as pets, and just release them when they get too big for the average person to handle.

    We have a breeding population of Nile Monitors like the one below happily living in the everglades as well.



    Did I mention... I love reptiles :)

    And by the way, they have a nasty temperament and will bite if bothered. They do not have poison but the bacterial flora in their mouth will make you wish they were poisonous. When I was in college many moons ago I was involved with a zoological preservation area and they would bring us animals that were found in urban areas. One that was brought was a 10 foot anaconda and that baby was mean as a mother-in-law. What freaked the hell out of me (besides my natural hatred of snakes) was the way she snapped her jaws at anybody who got close and how frigging fast it was. She got loose and took a lassoo and 6 guys (one of them a snake expert) to bring her into some sort of control.
