Sunday afternoon I got a call from Melanie at the Sea Urchin store in Gloucester. There was a snake behind the building. Someone told her it was a rattlesnake. She emailed me a photo. Carpet python from Australia. Evidently somebody's pet got loose. Snake was gone by the time I got there. Melanie called again on Monday. Snake was back. Colleen and I went over and got it. Anybody need a carpet python?
