    Hi Chris, it’s a python. We have two large pythons that visit regularly and there is now a very small snake visiting as well. I think it too is a python but until I know for sure, I have no intentions of getting close enough to find out.

    Cant say i blame you.i wouldnt either.
    Used to get lots of browns up here years ago ,but havnt seen any for some years. The area has been built up now so maybe thats the reason.

    Lots of soggy kookaburras and lorikeets around here at the moment....the rain is consistent, heavy and in for at least 3 or four days.
    Hard to believe I couldn't see our back fence for bushfire smoke not so long ago.
    What a land of contrasts we live in .
    Cheers,

    Here in sunny Melbourne... Carol was passing the dam and a Ha Ha pigeon took off with a snake in it's beak. Slacker dropped it before a pic could be taken.

    Those kookaburras sure are brave. The size of the "meals" they choose is amazing!

    I think it's a lowland copperhead... It was at the edge of a narrow track. Sharon was a couple of paces ahead of me so I saw it slither away after she stepped about 30cm from it. IMG_20200212_153444_257.jpg IMG_20200212_153527_884.jpg

    Yep nice one. Work at the prom but can’t see your kombi anywhere. You must be travelling in something else. Hope you have both enjoyed

    This fella brushed against Sharon's leg while she was cooking ... then moved through most campsites nuzzling everything looking for food
