Dr. Roehrig stands at a picnic table holding the long python's head close to his face. The tail of the snake is resting in a little girl's lap. Several men, women, and other children watch Dr. Roehrig closely.
At the auditorium of the Los Angeles Junior College president of the Zoological Society of Los Angeles and herpetologist Dr. G. Edward Roehrig discourages the killing of snakes to avoid wasting thousands of dollars getting rid of their natural prey such as rats, squirrels, and gophers.
Photograph appears with the article, "Snakes Given Defense As Friend of Mankind," Los Angeles Times, 13 July 1935: A3.
