beautiful pictures. this one particularly
well its defo a snake.. so that's a start
It's a pity the photo is from below, as most snake identification is done from above. It's hard to be 100% sure from the shot, but this seems to be Liasis perhtensis, a type of python that likes living in termite tunnels and feeding on geckos. The side markings are certainly consistent with it - sorry, no common name that I know of.
It's a beautiful shot.
Thanks very much for that. There are lots of termites around, and my own opinion is that its a python of some sort. Will remember to take topview shots in future
You're welcome, my pleasure.
For the record, I put a typo in the species name - it should be L. perthensis.
i think this pic i brilliant well done old bean
common name stimson python
(P) what's this?
