I was sure looking out for some.
Ended up going to most areas that I know where Olives are found and have been seen, but all we got was massive craps and skin.
olive lives there got some good photos ill upload when i can be bothered. We always get them coming onto the hall road at work and we relocated on from the beer garden in town. Too bad you didnt see any theres been heaps out lately1 x Stimson Python, 1 x South Western Carpet Python
I have found wellsi right through the exmouth area but they are typically less impressive than the animals found further north east. This is probably for a few reasons and one being that it is a possible hybrid zone with A. pyrrhus. this would explain the lighter banding.
Sorry if I'm annoying you! It's just I'm the type of person who asks a lot of questions and is very detail oriented...Sorry if it is annoying
When you say impressive do you just mean size wise or coloration?
Size between the two described population doesn't seem, from personal experience to be drastically different. But pattern and coloration does seem to, in a big way.
Here are some A. wellsi a colleague and i photographed from the exmouth area in january 2011. Very different to the interior colour forms.

The wheeleri's have gotta be my fave of the genus too, awesome colours on them.
Also love the Stroph. jeaneae and am anticipating the description of the undescribed Oedura 'marmorata' sp., and the whole revision of the marmorata complex.
Amazing pics! very lucky, I need to get out and do some herping when I get the chance, just need to find a 4WD so I don't get bogged every time I go somewhere that looks interesting...If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.
