Here's the proof. The tape is locked at exactly 64 inches. Sorry, but the snake simply wouldn't stretch out along the tape no matter how much I pleaded. You might notice the bump near the tail - clearly an old injury I'd guess, or maybe a spinal kink. I believe this was a wild-caught snake - I'm still waiting for word on the exact origin. I can say I'm really glad to have it in my collection. It's a very mellow snake although it did tail-rattle some during this photo shoot.

Big animals, little animals, plants - right down to the sea itself. We need them, not just for their own sake, but because all this has to be here for everybody forever. Only one thing is certain: if we are to preserve our environment and save this priceless wildlife we need much, much more knowledge.
Harry Butler from 'In the Wild With Harry Butler' 1977
