Carpet Python

Morelia spilota


Black and ivory coloured python.


Flexible habitat preferences. Can be found in dense lowland forest, shrubland, grassland, rocky areas, and in highly altered environments including agricultural and urban areas.


Photographed outside Tolga Country Lodge on the Atherton Tableland. This is actually a pet python, which was handed to me by a teenager who told me to hold it while she took a call on her mobile! I'm still not sure of the subspecies though, any help would be greatly appreciated.
