I don't know, I'm just glad that I wasn't bitten by him to find out. But according to my snake book, he is an Eastern Brown Tree-snake and they say- "Venomous but not regarded as dangerous" so I assume that his bite may only cause swelling and nausea at the worst.

Unfortunately I never had the opportunity to get a measurement of the Python (not that they are ever cooperative at the best of times) because I released him in that bushland behind me (behind my house) moments after I plucked him out of the neighbors yard. I guess his size to be 10 feet :?.....give or take a foot.
