The pics are authentic, but the origins are not.

Yes...one might wonder how an Afrock made it all the way to Iraq. LOL

I have a friend that had a 22', 250lb female Afrock that I helped him with on numerous occasions (she was quite big enough to easily kill a large adult man)....like most of her species, she was mean as all hell, and one of her babies (now about 16' itself) is now a major display animal in the Calgary Zoo's African savannah house. When she ate, she usually ate a couple of small pigs or goats, and typically comsumed 75-80lb meals.

Here is a pic of me holding a rather fiesty young male that came through my rescue last year:

Doesn't look even slightly like an Angolan python....very different morphology, much less pattern....I would kill for an Angolan, but you couldn't give me an Afrock.
