For the OP the pretty print module is usually better than plain old 
print https://docs.python.org/3/library/pprint.html#module-pprint.

I use it like this

from pprint import pprint as pp

The iPython shell (and presumably others as well) also does a better job 
of displaying objects than print.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
