    This won't compete with the Olives or Scrubbies, but this is my biggest, Coastal Carpet.

    Went to the Australian Reptile Park on Saturday to see a big snake, coz I don't have any 'just yet', and forgot my camera but had one on my phone, so I did the best I could.

    This little bugger (their retic) weighs in at 150kg's, 100 times heavier than my biggest snake in collection.

    I'll be making a return trip better equipped next time, hopefully during feeding too. This one eats goats.

    Sorry but the pic doesn't do this monster justice.

    They are incredible aren't they?
    iv seen two at Taronga, i think it was ...they were really active,
    coming right up the glass, then going for a dive in the large pool,
    the colours and size just blew my mind :shock:

    Your scrubby is disappointing, your bredli makes up for it, so does the black headed :)

    I want to see a captive version of these, mine are only 11ft, little ones:
