We have visitors from Western Australia today. As Brian was leaving he almost put his hand on this snake basking in the last rays of sunshine on what was a relatively cool day.
This spring we have seen three pythons already, possibly this same one (who can tell?). They all look sleek and well fed. This particular one was about 2 metres long. Although Australia is home to many poisonous snakes this is not one of them.
I think its patterns are really beautiful.
