Dusty Webb, a professional snake handler who has worked on various films, said he had never lost a snake prior to the escape last week from his south-central Santa Fe home of an eight-foot Burmese python.

    Nice guy. "Incapable of hurting humans" is a fib. A snake that size could easily kill a man in minutes, if it got around his neck. Remember the children recently killed (Nevada?) in their sleep by a pet constrictor?

    Dusty is also known, and revered, for giving Grateful Deadheads double-take whiplash flashbacks, before realizing that, no....Jerry's still dead, man.
