Murray Darling

The Murray Darling Carpet Python!

What a special encounter this is!

My Dad found this one near Echuca. It measured 1.5m and was probed to be a male.

Murray Darling Carpet Pythons are Endangered to extinction.

Bandy-Bandy Snake (Vermicella annulata)

The Bandy Bandy Snake is a very special animal. It feeds exclusively on Blind Snakes (Ramphotyphlops). The bandy-bandy snake is a burrowing snake that is seldom encountered. It is well known for a defensive display in which it alternates between thrashing and contorting itself into one or more large, vertically oriented coils, apparently to frighten predators.
