Buddy! You should not be in there, did you know Psy could swallow you whole! You're one lucky elf.
South-West Carpet Python 🐍 Feeling blessed to have bumped into this big guy/girl last night! The sun was well and truely gone but this snake was patient enough for me to sit down about 30cm away from it, set up my camera & tripod and begin trying to compose & focus a photograph in the dark. The most challenging part was focusing in the dark - I couldn't see anything so had to just keep adjusting the lens and taking another photo until I got it close enough! To put into perspective of how dark it was for other photographers, the settings used here were f/2.8, 25sec, ISO800 Now that is one very patient snake!
This is Beauty. Aptly named by Grace after Poppa said “isn’t she a beauty”. She usually lives under the big flat rock by the waterfall, where Grace would visit to watch her laze in the sun most mornings last summer. We finally spotted her today after waiting all winter, wondering where she was sleeping. The waking of snakes is a sure-fire reminder that spring is definitely here 🌞🐍 Watch your step, folks! #southwestcarpetpython
This week’s reader photo of a South-west carpet python (Morelia spilota ) was captured by Adam Brice @adam_brice_wild_life . “This image had been a long time coming! That's for sure!,” says Adam. “Nearly 2 years of waiting and searching had finally paid off with images of a wild South-west carpet python! Carpet pythons in Western Australia are certainly not as prevalent as their East coast counterparts that seemingly are found in almost every backyard. Over here, while common, they appear to be more elusive - so finding one out by itself in the bush is something almost miraculous! Photographing any wild animal has it's inherit risks and while pythons are not venomous they can deliver a pretty nasty bite! However, this particular python was more inquisitive than anything else and this was what I was trying to convey in the image - its inquisitive nature.” To have your image feature on our IG feed, head to our website and upload your reader photo, or tag #ausgeo ! #wildlifephotography #australia #snakesofaustralia #southwestcarpetpython
This was a friend's pet and also only a baby so I was in absolutely no danger! Southwest carpet pythons are native to where I live but you never see them in the wild, even if you're an avid hiker or trailwalker - coz they're up in the trees! Unfortunately our deadly snakes are the ones you find on the ground regularly, especially now it's heading in to summer. I've come across 3 deadly snakes in the past couple of weeks and one of them actually slithered between my poor sister's feet! . . . #australia #westernaustrlia #perth #southwestcarpetpython #carpetpython #snakes #reptiles #localwildlife #westaustralianwildlife #animallover #domorebemore #canonphotography #naturephotography #natgeotravel #livetoexplore #girlsinboots #love2travel #savethewild #seetheworld #ecotherapy #solofemaletraveler #animalwelfare #animalcharity #animalcauses
