lol me memorize scale counts? suuuuuuuuuuuuuureeeeee. i kept/keep pythons and local species can be narrowed down quite fast. i suppose i should look up scale counts for carpet pythons and figure out what mine is but my money is on it being a hybrid anyways, beautiful snake though. lil jumpy, but has never attempted to bite. Ozzy. im surprised. didnt realize there was that much of a variety in Ohio. cool. much better than here. even with that list it should be easy to narrow down with a pic.
