Any snake born in Java will perform better than these two; at least
that's what the Javanese snake-sellers tell me. What they don't tell you
is that you'll have to spend ten times as long training the darn snake.
I hear that sea-snakes are pretty fast too. But be warned: if you point
a sea-snake in an invalid direction, it may never come back. Also, be
prepared to clean up the mouse carcasses yourself.
