Police measure a Burmese  python after removing it from a home in Oxford, Fla. on Wednesday, July 1, 2009. Charles Jason Darnell, the snake's owner and the boyfriend of Shaunnia's mother, discovered the snake missing from its terrarium and went to the girl's room, where he found it on the girl and bite marks on her head, Caruthers said. Darnell, 32, stabbed the snake until he was able to pry the child away. (AP Photo/Ocala Star-Banner, Bruce Ackerman)
