I'd rather deal with loads of dangerous fish and sw nasties-zoas, animonies etc. then snakes any day! IMO people that keep big constrictors & venomous snakes are crazy...

Which is pretty hard to imagine happening which 5000 pound of force cutting the prey in 1/2.
for something so big and built to kill, they are more or less pussies. if you present yourself as a threat at all they don't tend to attack because it'd not worth the risk.

that doesnt mean I'm getting anywhere near them or their territory. I had a mild panic attack getting into the water around the Dominican Republic when my wife wanted to go snorkling, so i'm pretty sure if I saw a great white (or a nurse shark for that matter) i'd crap myself and get eaten.
