How do you have it? With a snake?

WHEN Ralph Affleck went to make his morning coffee last Friday a small squatter came slithering out of the jug.

Much to Mr Affleck's surprise, a 30cm baby carpet python, who must have curled up in the warm jug the night before, slithered out into his kitchen sink.

"I was just about to fill up the jug to boil water to make my thermos and what came out but this little fella," Mr Affleck said.

From Legume, he brought the little guy into the Daily News office to show it off to some excited - and some squeamish - staff members.

The placid snake is about six-months-old.

Mr Affleck said he was going to drop into a pet shop for advice on what he should do with the snake.
