Yes, found, in the forest on a hike today. Obviously released by some irresponsible idiot.

Wow. Just wow.
If you don't mind me asking, what state are you in? Here in KY it is already dipping down in the 30's at night.
People will do anything. :wall:

Seems like pretty good conditions for him in Singapore!

Yeah, he can definitely thrive there and breed if a female was nearby.

It happened in Florida when Hurricane Andrew went through and all of the exotics got loose...they found each other and started breeding like crazy.

Some idiot was going to let a reticulated python go here in buffalo. One of the cuties at my LPS heard about it and ran out and picked the snake up from the guy. It's a really good looking snake.

Oh and I have a stupid question I need answered: is there any way this snake could have anything on or in it that could infect my invert pets?

Not sure lol, it's so cute I want to keep it. But if I can't then I'll have to give it away.
Keep it! But being here, it could get expensive to feed...
Too bad my dad hates snakes, and mom hates dad rodents..

Just give it a warm bath, I think that should take of anything hitching a ride.

lol Yeah, Singapore would be just about right; for some reason I just assumed you were in the states. Still :evil:.

Snake mites won't get on your tarantulas, they are host specific. I'm not aware of anything that could be passed from reptiles to invertebrates. Enjoy your new friend if you keep him/her.
