Is this a jungle or coastal python?
Coastal!! Love it-where'd you find that?
Very nice coastal
Yep, Coastal! Very nice one, at that!
If you're asking Mr Waterrat I'm thinking trick question...?
Not at all. It was in my friend's garden in a dense rainforest near Kuranda. By the book, it should be a jungle. There you go!
Cant enlarge it, but looks coastal, found one very similar in Kuranda in 2000
It's a morelia spilota sp. A carpet python.
What is morelia spilota sp. ???
A vague term for all carpets lol, but I guess it's safe to call this one morelia spilota kuranda
Dear god, another one! Spilota = python equivalent of "Smith".
It looks like a jungle the brown splodges on the side are to well defined to be a pure coastal so at least i would say half half .
Funny, as i bought this as a "kuranda carpet".... I've always assumed its a jungle...
Looks like a Karanda Carpet Python to me. lol
And its quite possible this is a Karanda Carpet python too.
There is always a lot of variation in each area etc .
Does not make them a seperate sub species IMO .
I reckon that first one is cheynei anyway.
