Parents, could you quickly check that there isn't a python near your kid? In the past couple of months, pythons have been found in day-care centers, lying next to babies in cribs and now Tess Guthrie of Lismore, Australia, woke to find her 2-year old daughter, Zara, wrapped up in a python. When Guthrie was woken by her hissing cat she saw the nightmare scene, the enormous snake wound three times around her daughter's arm. Guthrie grabbed below the snake six inches below its head, but in the struggle, it bit her daughter three times. Zara has since been treated and released from the hospital, and the snake has also been released, back into the wild — Guthrie insisted the reptile not be destroyed. [Source]
