You never know what'll slither into the Charles River when you're just standing there, where Sawmill Brook enters the river at Millennium Park, looking at the little fish swimming by the shore. It was like 18 to 24 inches long.
Mike the Mad Biologist reports a guy is standing in the Public Garden this evening, trying to charge $5 to have your photo taken with his ten-foot long python yellow anaconda. Yes, it's alive.

EMTs responded shortly before midnight to Orton Marotta Way, where a 21-year-old man had been bitten in the right hand by a snake. EMTs, unfamiliar with snakes, were unable to identify the breed. The man complained of tingling in his hand but did not have any breathing problems, a spokesman for Boston EMS reports, adding he did not have any details on what the man was doing with the snake. Animal Control did remove the snake from the scene.
