Here is one more from the Cambodia daily newspaper just as we were leaving for Australia.
FAMILY PET NO MATCH FOR SNAKE
Sydney - A five-meter python stalked an Australian family's dog for days before swallowing the pet whole in front of horrified children, local media said Wednesday. The python devoured the silky terrier-chihuahua Monday night in Cairns as two children aged 5 and 7 watched in horror, the Cairns Post newspaper reported. The body of the family's cat had been found a few weeks earlier looking as if something had tried to swallow it, and Sunday a smaller python ate the family's pet guinea pig, the newspaper reported. Zoologist Stuart Douglas said pythons usually ate wallabies(animals resembling small kangaroos) but turned to pets in urban areas. " The family...had actually seen it in the dog's bed, which was a sign it was out to get it," he told local media.
So, it's off to Australia!!! Holly
