Haskell like (c:cs) syntax

Hi,

sorry that I'm relatively new to Python. But the syntax and semantics of 
Python already fascinate me, because I'm familiar with functional languages 
like Haskell.

Is there a pattern matching construct in Python like (head : tail), meaning 
'head' matches the first element of a list and 'tail' matches the rest? I 
could not find this in the Python documentation.

Regards,
Stefan
