I have had a number of different snakes around my neck. They don't scare me at all. In fact I think snakes are awesome

 Liasis olivaceus, commonly called the olive python,[2] is a python species found in Australia

With adults reaching over 4 m in length, this is Australia's second-largest snake species (surpassed only by the scrub python). Its high midbody dorsal scale count, 61-72, makes the skin look smoother than that of other pythons. The number of ventral scales is 355-377.[2] The colour pattern is a uniform chocolate brown to olive green, while the belly is usually cream coloured.[4]

Unfortunately, this species is occasionally confused with the venomous king brown snake, Pseudechis australis, and is often mistakenly killed.

This snake is found in Australia in Western AustraliaNorthern Territory and Queensland. The type locality given is "North Australia; Port Essington" (Northern Territory, Australia).[1]

Habitat[edit]

It occurs in rocky areas, gorges and especially rocky areas near sources of water. Typically, shelter is sought in caves and rock crevices, but individuals have also been found in hollow logs and in burrows under rocks.[2]

Feeding[edit]

The diet consists of birdsmammals and other reptiles,[2] including rock-wallabiesfruit batsducks and spinifex pigeons. They prefer to lie in wait next to animal trails to ambush their prey. Alternatively, they are strong swimmers and also hunt in waterholes, striking at prey from under the water.[4] They are also known to prey on monitor lizards and crocodiles.

Snakes have got to scare me more than anything else! I manned up and took my fear on the Mekong Delta in Vietnam were a family kept two of these beauts as pets! The thing weighed a tonne and I was more than happy to get it off my neck! My girlfriend managed to set my camera in video mode rather than camera mode which made the experience last longer than it needed to!

I was in South Africa, volunteering at Karongwe Private Game Reserve. On one of the early days, we took a trip to a reptile centre and got some reptile and spider/scorpion training and some snake handling. I was most surprised by how soft and smooth the Boa was. Great experience!

 Mexico. The experience was pretty cool. Only happened for a few seconds. Long enough for my mom to snap a quick picture and then hand the snake back to the handler. It was a huge snake though. Majestic, almost. I don't have access to that picture, though so here's one of Adrienne from Cycle 1 of ANTM.

When I was in Thailand I visited a snake farm. After a demonstration of several snakes, one could go on the photo with a python around their neck. First I was to scared, but then even little children went on the photo with the snake. So I could not stay behind. And now I'm very proud of doing it and I even liked doing it!

When I was around 8 years old my mother, her husband, and I were driving back from a visit with my grandparents on the other side of the mountains. After driving for about one and a half hours we decided to pull over and walk a little bit at The Reptile Zoo in Manson, Washington.

When we paid our fees and got inside we discovered that the zoo was having an event and for $10 someone could hold the yellow 6 foot (might have been bigger) Burmese python.

Well thought that this would be the coolest $10 my mom would ever spend on me, and it was. 

Being able to feel the beautiful python's scales as she slithered her way around my neck and over my arms was amazing. It was and still is one of my favorite animal encounters I've ever had.
