  1. Scot, I am so sorry, but I recently removed an incorrect species identification you had placed on a photo and it demoted you back to the mountain gorilla class. :( So, to make up for that, I looked at your karma and saw that you were only a few points away from the lion class, so here is a comment on this wonderful python portrait to re-promote you!

The Burmese python is one of the five largest snakes in the world, native to a large variation of tropic and subtropic areas of Southern- and Southeast Asia. Until 2009 they were considered a subspecies of ''Python molurus'', but now are recognized as belonging to a distinct species. They are often found near water and are sometimes semi-aquatic, but can also be found in trees. Wild individuals average 3.7 metres long, but may reach up to 5.74 metres .
