Jeff Corwin introduces Piers Morgan to "Buddha," the 15-foot Burmese Python: "All your nightmares are coming true"

Coming up Friday at 9, the "Piers Morgan Live" studio takes on a decidedly reptilian feel, as Jeff Corwin visits the program. Note: he does not visit alone.

Toting a Burmese Python, Piers Morgan is instantly captivated (terrified?) when the animal and nature conservationist begins to pull his special guest from a large plastic box:

"Feel a bit like when they brought Hannibal Lecter out of his cage," Morgan mutters nervously.

Admitting that for the host, the snake represents the idea that "all your nightmares are coming true," Corwin introduces Morgan to "Buddha," a 15-foot long "venus neck popping python" that weighs several hundred pounds.

Noting that the reptile native to the jungles of Southeast Asia "is one of the largest snakes in captivity," the host of Animal Planet's "The Jeff Corwin Experience" and "Corwin's Quest" explained how "Buddha" came to be part of an educational program:

"This, of course, is an animal that started out as an illegal pet. It was confiscated," he tells Morgan. "You can buy them in pet shops. You can get them online. And now many, many states are passing laws prohibiting you from having them as pets."

While an unwelcome guest in the Florida Everglades and southern part of the U.S., tonight's slippery guest, according to Corbin, "perform[s] an incredible purpose" whilst living within its natural habitat:

"They're a part of that living community. They're part of the ecosystem. When a big female snake like this, she'll produce 50, 60 eggs. They are consumed by other animals," he explains. "When you begin your life as a Burmese python, you ain't this big. You've got to work your way up, and the odds are against you."

Watch the clip for more of "Buddha," a python which may one day grow to "20, 25 feet in length and have a girth of near telephone poll size," then tune in to CNN at 9 for an episode of "Piers Morgan Live" that will feature not only snakes, but also sharks and alligators.
