An Australian woman says she hated snakes even before she found 14 young carpet pythons in her bedroom.Esther Honegger of Fannie Bay told The Northern Territorian she first noticed some of the snakes as she prepared for bed Wednesday night.
“I hate snakes and as I walked backwards and forwards I would see another one,” she said. “They were everywhere — there was one curled around my bedhead, another around the bottom of the chair, and when I went outside there was one in the hallway, another on the railing and another on the step. It was like I was having a nightmare.”
Snake catcher Geoff Brouff removed seven of the baby pythons Wednesday and was summoned back to Honegger’s home Thursday, when he found seven more.
Brouff believes a female python living on the roof laid her eggs there and the babies slithered down through air-conditioning vents. Since carpet pythons usually lay 25 to 30 eggs, Honegger could have some more unwelcome guests. …- upi
Freaky. She could make some money selling them. Bill Cosby had a skit my brother and I used to love about parents keeping their kids in bed by telling them there were snakes on the floor. I didn’t know that GW Bush awarded Cosby a Medal of Freedom. Good for Bill, he should get that. He has helped so many people stay sane though laughter. Good move by Bush, but in general I think Bush is a snake, so the photo is fitting for this post in a few ways. Better than a picture of 14 snakes! Yuck.
