In the last couple of months, pythons have been found in day-care centers, next to babies. Tess Guthrie from 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 the snake six inches below its head, but it bit her daughter three times.
Zara has been treated and released from the hospital, and the snake has also been released, back into the wild — Guthrie insisted the reptile not be killed which is very wise from a scared mother.
