Camera Critters. The Python, Australia
My daughter sent me a couple of photos, among them this one. I recognised her bedroom and this snake lying on top of her mirror. I asked her what that snake was doing there. She said it was just a python and he was not dangerous, for he had plenty of food in the forest, like brush turkeys, wallabies, bandicoots, possums and rats. She said he was useful and that after taking the photo, she went to bed again. Just like that!!!!
Oh horror of horrors! I might be too concerned, but what if it had been a taipan or a death adder??
The coastal taipan has earned a reputation as the country's most feared snake because it sports the biggest fangs, one of the most lethal venoms and a rather aggressive nature - an unsettling combination if you find yourself in the parts of north Queensland and the Northern Territory which it calls home.
