One of the most dangerous snakes, because of her aggressiveness and very toxic venom. Most of the lethal incidents with snakes have to be written on her account, at least in africa (in India it is the cobra, but not the king cobra!). Worldwide, about 40.000 people die each year from snake bites. About 10.000 could be victims of this snake, if the numbers are correct.
Taken in a terrarium Scharnstein/Upper Austria, Austria in Winter 2007.

The Ball python (Python regius), also known as the Royal python, is a ground dwelling, nonvenomous snake native to the savannahs and rain forests of western and central Africa, ball pythons can be found from Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia on the west coast, east to southwestern Sudan and northwestern Uganda.

Tens of thousands of ball pythons are annually imported into the U.S., mostly originating from Togo, Benin, and Ghana. The name ball derives from the animal's tendency, when stressed or frightened, to curl into a tight "ball" with its head hidden inside, often for long periods of time. The name royal (from the regius in the Latin name) comes, in part, from Cleopatra, who supposedly wore the snake around her wrist.

The ball python is typically light brown-green or black in color, with a tan-yellow underbelly. However, ball pythons come in many morphs, which are genetic mutations that alter the colors and patterns of the scales. Adults range in length from 1 to over 2 meters, with the average female reaching 1 to 1.5 m and the average male, 60 to 90 cm. A mature female will commonly grow distinctly larger than the male.

BTW: In Greek mythology Python was the earth-dragon of Delphi, always represented in the vase-paintings and by sculptors as a serpent. Pytho was the chthonic enemy of Apollo, who slew her and remade her former home his own oracle, the most famous in Classical Greece.

This is a harmless gopher snake or bull snake, like EcoSnake pointed out (thanks!).

Pituophis is a genus of non-venomous colubrid snakes commonly referred to as gopher snakes, pine snakes, and bull snakes. Species within the genus are found throughout the United States and Mexico. Sometimes mistaken for rattlesnakes, pine snakes are able to hiss quite loudly and will shake their tails when threatened.

Todays (12th Aug 2007) walk through the Botanic Garden in Linz (Upper Austria) gave me the opportunity to move to something completely different after all those stage shootings I did recently.
Usually I do not flash animals but I accepted this for the fly on the blossom here. It did not care ...
