Field Notes - At least 7 foot long, growing up we called these carpet snakes but i think they are called a diamond python?
Really healthy and shiny. A beautiful big snake. Pretty sure it has recently shed
Field Notes - this was the second diamond python we found trying to cross the road about 1km apart. the other will be submitted by another questagamer. we directed car and bike traffic to ensure they safely made it across without scaring anyone.
