‘Amy’ the Amethystine Python (Morelia amethistina)
Well I have to say that I have seen more snakes in the last 6 months than I have ever seen in my life. Perhaps it’s because I walk the same routes and I am starting to see more in the general landscape, or maybe I’m just getting better at spotting them.
Amy first appeared in Late May. Since that first encounter I have seen her another 8 times all within a 50 metre range. She often has a sleep in the sun and we have even seen her on a Night Walk waiting to strike at an unsuspecting rodent that would cross her path on the edge of a storm water drain. The next morning I found her sunbaking with a nice round lump half way down her body. She had a good night. She’s a very chilled out snake and barely moves when I come to say hello.
