please, make me deny ignorance

I have dealt with over hundred different burms and only a select few have been aggressive, it is by no means normal for them to be aggressive, you are
100% wrong there. As someone with experience with them I can easily see why they are called gentle giants. Of course in the wild they are going to
kill and eat what they can to survive, you would do the same.
I almost didn't reply, because I was open to being corrected, and said outright I didn't really know. But didn't like the tone of your post. after I
reread it, you just corrected me.
I looked into it, and it seems I was wrong. A few people have died from their Burmese pythons, but mostly do to their own fault. Obviously, if you
want a pet that can potentially kill you, you need to take care how you care for it. The same could be said for Pit bulls, Great Danes, or whatever.
I admit, I assumed they were aggressive based of what I saw on TV. I don't think they are good pets for most people, because they will outgrow most
people, but seems like a dedicated snake lover might find them as good pets.
I don't think this matters to what they might do to the FL ecosystem.
This is me saying thank you, I was wrong, and I thank you for making me look into it, and deny my ignorance
