Would have to have far more info to begin to really get a good ID, in most cases unless it is some really common type kept as pets.
Native or do you feel it has escaped? Does it have the marks of venomous or what makes you think python?

As others have said, knowing where you live would help considerably. If I had to guess I'd go with a Children's Python. If that's what it is they are generally pretty docile and make decent pets.

Inland carpet python?
Do you live in Australia?
If not it's an escaped pet.

If you still have it and don't live in its native habitat, call around to see if there's an exotic pet store in the area that will hold onto it and may know who owns it.

Yech! Only thing worse than a snail is a snake. I suggest moving to a cold climate. If I walked up on that, I would have to do a potty check. The horror of it all.

I'd much rather have snakes than rats.

Same. Snakes just creep around and maybe bite you if you surprise them. Rats gnaw everything, eat your food, infest your house, bring you fleas, and pee on literally everything they run across. I like rats, they're incredibly intelligent and highly adaptable animals, but you do not want them in your property.

Definitely a Children's Python, kept and bred them for a while

Too many tanks, never enough plants...

Itís a childrens python for sure. Really docile. I love snakes. Less than 10% of snakes are poisonous and even those will leave you alone unless cornered and threatened. They are so vital to keeping rodent populations down people just donít realize how important they are and would just have them eradicated.

LOL. I would guess the number of poisonous snakes is much lower than that. You can eat almost any of them.

The number of venomous snakes might be less than 10% though.

Venomous versus poisonous is a HUGE difference.

Living in a place where rattlesnakes are everywhere I hear people make this error constantly. It drives me nuts.

Meant venomous. You can eat for example a rattle snake even though it is venomous. My grammar mistake lol.

Use to catch diamondback rattlesnakes by hand as a teenager all the time. Never hurt or killed them though understanding their and other snake importance even as a kid. Even kept a green anaconda as a kid till it started getting to big then gave away to someone that could care for it.
