Hey Mark, yeah this python was found on the crushed gravel road sunning itself in the morning. And Lori let me know when you are heading up this way, hopefully it will be a good season
Really want to get back to Queensland, Scot, for so many reasons, not the least of which is the Reef.
Must have had a look in the tar bucket. Interestingly they are about the same size as SFraziers elapid too. Great looking python. Is this on that road surface?
Yeah Frazier they do look fairly similar surprisingly. Lori, I've always wanted to see the famous three snakes of Tassie, when you have some time off northern queensland is great right now for snakes, been seeing at least one species a night.
Such a cool spotting Scott. Lovin' your collection!
Great photos Scott, of a spectacular snake. I've seen Tassie's three species of snakes (Tiger, White-lipped & Copperhead), but yet to spot any others while out of state. Lucky you.
Very nice. Superficially, I mean in the heat of the moment, this species looks like some individuals of the New Guinea small-eyed snake. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/688... I'm glad they don't overlap, so I know what I am looking at!
