I do recall that it was an Amethystine Python. It is Australia's largest snake, named in reference to the milky iridescent sheen of it's scales. It normally feeds on large wallabies or kangaroos, to which the kid would have been an ideal snack for the snake. I love how the kid said "bye bye bitey" to it when it was taken away. I'll bet that kid will become a snake handler when he grows older for sure.
