I was dehydrated an nodding off from the heat on the Tonle Sap. Two children came up and the boy put the python on me. I'm not big on one on one contact with snakes. I do have a natura respect for them. I hd been eating a power bar from my camera bag earlier. I didn't want the snake to think I was that power bar being that they are extreemly blind but rely on their senses. I got a few shots off being too close. I wasn't laughing after I tumbled off my chair.
