I understand that people are afraid of snakes, but nothing about this is particularly worrisome. Most snakes can climb trees. Some snakes are very good at it. Reticulated pythons are in the latter camp, and with exception to extremely large animals, they are harmless.
I knew snakes could swim, but climb trees?? Imagine thinking you’re safe up there and you look down and see this. New fear unlocked.
@shaunduke I thought most people's first brush with fear of snakes came from the Jungle book, and that one *explicitly* climbs trees.
