That's one gargantuan python featured in today's Bradenton Herald. And to think -- at least legend has it -- that some former Herald publisher, years ago, handed down a mandate that photos of snakes were not allowed in the newspaper. Apparently his wife had a strong aversion to slimy reptiles, or so the story goes.
Well, if there's proof that her legendary censorship is no longer active, take a look at our 1A skybox and local cover. Photographer Tiffany Tompkins-Condie did her best to capture the critter they caught yesterday in this account.
I'm just glad that wasn't my assignment.
