Icy Snake

Icy Snake

Carpet Python nearly icy due to the cold

Like all reptiles, snakes are ectotherms, which means they regulate their body temperature according to the temperature in the environment. During warm days they can be very active, but preserve their energy when it is cool. During the recent cold throughout the region, snake sightings have reduced significantly. Those that are found by our clients are often trying to seek warmth on rooves or inside. Our snake catcher Brandon relocated this icy juvenile from a client’s home in Sunnybank Hills. It was so still and cold he initially thought it was dead! He managed to find a sunny spot to release it in the nearby bushland.

House Special-Python Eats Possum

House Special-Python Eats Possum

Carpet Python Consumes Possum in Client’s House

Coastal Carpet Pythons are known to eat very large prey, with this snake capturing and consuming a Common Brushtail Possum inside a client’s house in Corinda. We are called to removed Pythons in the process of eating possums fairly often, but very rarely Inside a client’s home. The client mentioned she left a door open earlier in the day, and the resident possum that rests under the verandah had disappeared. Both the possum and snake must have entered and the possum met its end under the television cabinet.

When called to a snake part way through eating an animal, we do our best to way until it has fully consumed it. Snakes predating is a natural process and keeps the suburban possum population in check.

Woma Python Pet

Woma Python Pet

Woma Python Office Pet

This gorgeous Woma Python was caught during a snake call out in 2019, but as this species is not found locally we knew it was an escaped pet. When we find escaped pets they are handed over to the Department of Environment and Science, who seek to have them returned to their owner or adopted by someone. As no one sought to adopt her, we went through the process ourselves and he is now our office work pet. We’ve affectionately nicknamed her Holly! She’s a very gentle snake and is fond of waiting to poo until she’s taken onto the lawn in the sun!

The Woma Python lives in the arid semi-arid parts of Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, as well as some of the south-west of WA near Shark Bay. This species feeds almost exclusively on reptiles in the wild, sometimes crushing their prey against the walls of their burrows. Womas shelter in burrows made by other animals in the heat of the day, but will actively dig further with their shovel-shaped head. The only other Australian python which digs is the Black Headed Python, a relative of the Woma.
