This is where I should try and boil my personality into a few words.  They will be the chosen few, selected from the abyss of literary existence to have all their etymological influence neglected for the sake of seeming cleverness unlikely to find a replication in realtime conversation. Ok, here goes. I'm fuzzy puppy gif, star eyed anime guy, and free pizza personified in one individual.

 

Keep reading books, but remember that a book is only a book, and you should learn to think for yourself.

Black-headed Python 
The Black-headed Python, Aspidites melanocephalus (Pythonidae), is an Australian species of python with an average length of 155cm.
These distinctive pythons have a glossy jet black head that ends abruptly just behind the neck. The eyes are also black and the pupils are almost invisible. The body is light brown to dark caramel with dark cross bands along the entire body. The bands are darkest dorsally and fade towards the ventral scales. The belly is light cream speckled with darker spots.
Unlike other pythons, this one lacks heat sensing pits, probably due to a large percentage of their prey being cold blooded.
The scientific name comes from Aspidites, meaning ‘shield-bearer’, in reference to the large scales on the head; and melanocephalus, meaning ‘black head’.
