Where was this taken mate? I'd say a breed of carpet python depending on the location.

Tassie was bad

Went on a trip in Tasmania with the Brother in Law and on the first day heading towards and going down the Western Explorer we passed three in the middle of the dirt road along the way. A brown, a taipan and one other I couldnt identify (golden bugger).

Then when we were looking for a campsite and headed down a little used track and a big black bugger was in the middle of a pretty heavily grassed bit of track so we gunned it a hundred metres or so to find an impassable section which had a big a$$ed beehive waiting for us so we had to turn around and go back through the section with the black snake again. Its not much fun riding with your legs raised up to nearly the handlebars...

Then when we hit the north east coast the snake fun started again and I almost put the bike down (a 1200GS with gear) in a sandy section right on top of a brown. Needless to say I am glad I took a spare change of undies... Never seen so many snakes in one trip as in Tassie!

"This big fella was sunning himself just a few kms from "glenhaughton" station in the expedition range" - Damn Jfn that one looks like you could saddle it and sell rides!

Eh? Best snake photo!

Show us what you've got. Description, location and species if you got close enough to find out.

Last weekend, missed his head by about a foot, lucky F$%kr. Ridley Road, Sate Forest, WA. Python I think, about 6 foot head to tail.

Black snakes are fairly common on/near the beach - I've seen quite a few but never seen anything that big.

What sort of snake was it?
