Nature, its such a beautiful thing isnt it?

nadine

ewww, how disgusting is that. me and my friends went swimming in our local river today and we were saying how there could be a snake under the water. poor little kangaroo, hey! whereabouts did that take place?

nadine

martine

its not real Nadine u geek

Kyle

I'm sorry Tini, but I don't actually see how that can be fake.
If it is, i'd be suprised... tell us Mick, is it real or not?

Mick

It was sent to me as real, but I'm not sure how long brown snakes grow. I'll check up and get back to you.....

Simon

That's no brown Not even a king. Looks more like a reticulated python....but i'm not a snake expert i just wrestle them for fun.

Ry

I agree... looks almost like a huge carpet python. If its not in Australia it could be a Boa.

I think the photo is real, the detail of the snake pulling the roo out, all the curves of muscle straining, I would be interested in knowning if it dragged it all the way up into its cave.

Tim Pratt

This snake is actually an olive python from the north of Australia.It lives in areas around the Kimberly rangers. These rangers are rocky outcrops. As you can tell this provides great camoufage for this snake.

Tania

G'day,

Does anyone have the other photos in this sequence?

I have a 5 year old Water Python which I have had since she was 10 days old (the size of a pencil, now 2m) and have friends in the states who don't believe how big she'll get.

Thanks a lot!

Mick

Sorry, this is all we got.

ry

You didn't really try at all did you bro... I mean ppl come to your blog for some advice or more information, and you blow them off.

Here you go Tania
www.abc.net.au/farnorth/ stories/s1409992.htm

It has one more picture for you.

Mick

Actually, it's the same picture, just cropped and blown up slightly.

Plus your address has a space in it. Nice one Ryan. Send my good customers to a dead link.

Here is the correct link;

http://www.abc.net.au/farnorth/stories/s1409992.htm

ry

So instead of using your power as an editor to correct the link, you make an obvious point to correct me... Can't get enough of your brotherly love!

KC

How do we know it's eating the roo anyway? Looks like they are kissing to me.

ry

So... The Kangaroo is just sitting there on the side, looking comfortable. Then the snake lowers itself (spiderman style) slowly till it gets face to face with the roo.

The roo then peels back a layer of the snakes skin like a mask and Kiss???

KC

Well, maybe. I am a glass half full kinda gal though...

Where's Simon?

Ry

Thats good to be an optimist... however differentiating between kissing and eating is not relating to being possitive or negative.

Unless you think canabalism is cute?

KC

I see the picture and see kissing, so it IS related to seeing things in a positive light.

Blax

I have a water python, and it lookes exactly like the snake in the pic. But, everywhere i've seen researching water pythons say that water pythons only get to 3 meters, mayby 4. The snake in the pic looks to be at least 7, probably 8 meters long, meaning if it is an aussie snake, it's probobly the 'Australian Scrub Python'. I found my info here; http://www.smuggled.com/auspyt3.htm
It's worth a look if your into snakes.

sophie
