Sad. Found at a construction site.

These kinds of "displaying the giant python" photos really rub me the wrong way.

Big pythons are seen as indestructible and they are not. They have internal organs and tissues just like every other animal. All those guys pretty much manipulating it any way they can to get that traditional Circus Shot.

The snake died because of it. Peritonitis or something, poor grand and beautiful one.

Even though it died, given its size it probably had a very long and productive life, which gives me a modicum of comfort.
