In this case, three.

Last week, Clarence Valley snake catcher Paul Jones, his colleague and the vehicle owner heaved on the 3m python for an hour before the 8kg snake let go.

Mr Jones warned people should be wary that snakes were starting to come out again as temperatures heated up.

FUN FACT

A mum carpet python will incubate her eggs for 12-17 weeks wrapped around them stacked in a pyramid. The ones on the outside of the pyramid turn into females as they get warmer against the mother's body, while those on the inside, where there is less body contact, become males.
