Summary
Two gruesome pictures of a Python caught in an electric fence. Warning: not for the faint of heart.

This Python was caught in an electric fence after eating a whole sheep. The bulge is the sheep.

That's what I call an out of bounds error!

I'm not quite sure, but I think that picture has been shot at my city (Blumenau, Brazil).

"Python eats sheep". That's just a story for children.

"Python eat alligator... ...then explodes". Now that's a real story.

That's interesting, but as a Floridian I can say that it's one of the less weird things that happens here.

You're referring to recent presidential elections, right?

Among other things.

South Florida is a strange place. You have retirees, people from Latin America who came to escape oppression, tourists, drug runners, people of low means who came to escape the cold, and people of high means who came to hide money from creditors via Florida's unique homesteading law ( http://www.alperlaw.com/moving_to_florida.html ).

If you get a chance, read one of Carl Hiaasen's novels. They are comedies, but they give an accurate flavor of the place. :-)

That's not an electric fence. It would have plastic/ceramic insulators on the poles if it was.


That looks suspiciously like an African Rock Python, usually found in South Africa.

Oops, didn't see the second picture. So the first part is electric...
