We asked residents of Welwyn Hatfield to send in pictures of their unusual pets - and we were greeted with an array of exotic reptiles.

James Hurt, who lives in Hollybush Lane, Welwyn Garden City, sent pictures of Fi, his 15-foot Burmese python.

He said: "I decided to get Fi purely because of her size. She is an amazing animal to look at and to watch feed.

"She's very docile as far as snakes go, in comparison to my anaconda, who hates the world."

James has had Fi for around five years, having rehomed her, and has been keeping snakes for a long time. As well as Fi and his anaconda, he also has a Guyana boa constrictor.
