Slim was played by Tarzan, who has since passed away. He was a reticulated python, and while not neccesarily sweet, he was always funny.

One morning as I was leaving for Mexico, I found he'd escaped his temporary digs (I had just moved) and he'd fallen asleep on the back step with his head resting on an empty food (mice) carton. I picked him up and tucked him back in his cage.
