    The skin was not left like that by the snake; it's not possible for a snake to leave it as we see it there. A human posed it like that. Possibly they found it on the ground nearby and put it up in the framework for a better picture but by far most likely some prankster took it from their pet's enclosure and put it up to troll people and is no doubt delighted at the result.

    Whether or not you agree with what the prankster did, you'd have to admit... well played.

    I can't believe I laughed at that.... but I did.

    I need help!

    And on that note - that may not be a house frame... It may be a frame for....




    .... a shed. :p



    @Sdaji - that was my thought as well... sounds like a prank. Well played - but may have gone further than first anticipated with biosecurity now involved.

    Again, whether or not you admire the prankster, it would be poetic justice if the success of the prank resulted in sufficient investigation to track down the owner and confiscate the boa.

    Having said that, if I was the boa I wouldn't be particularly nervous.

    I find it very sus. I mean it seems a bit more than a coincidence that it's the start of the business season for "snake catchers" and a shed of a "large" Boa just happens to show up draped over the framework of a building site in full view of the public. Personally if I were a member of the DPI I'd be looking into the friends and associates of the bloke that's been on TV and in the papers (and who appears to me wouldn't know s..t from clay) from Australian Snake Catchers to see if I could locate the owner.
