Morelia spilota mcdowelli
This is a subspecies of Morelia spilota and usually attains lengths of 2.7-over 3 m in length(9–10 feet). The scales along the lower jaw are pitted, olive brown with darker blotches and stripes. The pattern and colour are variable. Midbody scales in 40-60 rows, single anal scale subcaudal scales divided. Most of the head scales are small beadlike and arranged irregularly.
Spotted right outside my back door, curled in a corner behind a pot. Then moved into one of the remnant rainforest patches in my backyard.
This guy was one of the biggest i've seen around here! Over 2m in length but not particularly fat. Very beautiful markings. Common sight where i live however rarely found next to house & i usually don't have my camera on me when i spot them.
