This photo was used in one issue of 'Our Zoo News'. The picture is of my sister who used to work at the zoo in the reptile house.
In this particular issue she wrote a piece about the reptile house and what was found there.
She explained: " - the Royal Python [which is what she's holding in the photo]. This snake, aptly named as its markings are beautiful, attains a length of only four or five feet. Our specimen is quite friendly, allowing itself to be handled."
