Yes, that's Python2.  I've never used MAC OS, but I understand that it
has the BASH shell, so you can use "which" try to figure out where
python is being found on the path:

$ echo $PATH

$ which python

Use the above to also check for the position of python2 and python3.

You can check for aliases and links with the "type" and "file" commands.
Do this for python, python2 and python3:

$ type $(which python)

$ file $(which python)
