As you know, pythons are big snakes that squeeze their prey to death before they swallow it. A big python once crawled into a little cottage and killed the baby sleeping there. The baby's father determined to have his revenge. He found the hole where the python lived, and called down : "I know you can only behave as all snakes do. I will forgive you if you come out and say you are sorry." Very carefully, the python put the tip of its nose out of the hole. Immediately, the father swung his axe to kill it, but missed and hit a rock. "I cannot trust you, nor you me," said the python. "We were made to be enemies."
