Oh yes, I am very glad I live in Tucson and not in Africa where the Rock Python hangs around in trees waiting to squeeze its next meal to death! These are the biggest snakes in Africa and can measure 15 feet in length. Happily, this fake snake lives at the Reid Park Zoo and isn't looking for prey!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
