     Keith Stambaugh has a very interesting hobby.

    Stambaugh collects pythons and currently has 20 of them in a shed next to his house.

    Some of the snakes are as big a 20 feet long and weigh up 220 pounds.

    He began collecting the snakes when he was 12 years old.

     Stambaugh occasionally travels to schools with his snakes to educated kids about the pythons and how to safely handle the reptile.
 
     He says his neighbors don't seem to have a problem with his hobby and occasionally come over with their kids to have their pictures taken.

     His 16-year old son is also starting to collect pythons. He currently has two baby pythons.
