So, I get home late last night and see this "tree branch" in the road, just as you enter our farm.
Immediately demoerin because we have had some night walkers recently, with he implied theft/ damage.

Gathering my wits and summoning the guardian Brannas angel, I get out to investigate.

Pretty little 3 meter specimen.
She was quite placid and curios as to this staggering dickwad paparazzi twat.
Night walkers take a wide berth around them... good guard animals. >:D

Sadly I disagree. I think nightwalkers would panga the snake and not give it a second thought. Which is criminal in itself.

Found this python cycling into work a couple of days ago in the main street in Proserpine QLD. They are quite common at this time of year.

6" long Night adder swallowing a toad. It was then transported across the road to bother the neighbours.

Can consider itself lucky as I'm finding more bits of snake these days with the Africanus hounds' hunting instinct.

I used my daughter's Fujifilm X-T20 and am quite impressed with the quality.

 :biggrin: I'll leave that to your discerning eye.

I used to blat all form of snake earlier years (especially after getting peanuts from Halfway House snake park for a number of black mambas I captured in the Lowveld and sent on in a tin can via SA Railways) but have become a little more sensitive these days.

Luckily we don't get too many dangerous ones on the South Coast.

Not quite as unusual as a python on a bicycle but I include this echidna, also seen on a morning bicycle ride, because they are one of two remaining species of animal, along with the duck billed platypus of the order Monotremata, that lay eggs like a snake.  Makes a real mess of the side walls of your tyre too.
