Samantha the Python Has Died

Samantha, the largest captive snake in the world, who for a decade dazzled a million visitors a year, died at her home in the Bronx Zoo yesterday. She was old.
(from Samantha's NY Times obituary)

I regret to say that I had never seen Samantha, for despite five years of working in New York City, I have never made it to the Bronx Zoo. She sounds like a majestic creature, and I hope the pigs are tender wherever she is now.

Thanks, Leslie!
