As you watch them constricting and doing their thing, it's hard not to be impressed by how these simple creatures can be so powerful, yet somehow so graceful at the same time. Some are known for being pretty feisty, but a number of pythons are actually extremely calm and docile — they seem to just want to mind their own business.
