Morelia spilota

Carpet Pythons range extends throughout most of Australia, with the exception being Tasmania. They vary in colour and size, these variations in colours and sizes together with the location determine the sub species. There are six recognised sub species (Centrilian, Jungle, South-Western, Coastal, Inland and North-Western) The one photographed here is the Inland or Murray Darling Carpet Python sub species.
