    My guess would be don't attempt to lick it. It certainly looks like the kind of snake that wouldn't apreciate it.


    EB I think.

    no surprise with that outcome ...had a call out to the gympie muster last year for a redbelly ,the people asked the rangers that were out there would they remove it ..one replied yeah" I will get a shovel"...:rolleyes: as the lady that called me said "she has no faith in these so called enviromental park rangers ,when comments are made like that" she paid me more then I quoted her to do the job as she was grateful that it had a chance to survive and not be on the end of someones shovel...

    I reckon 90% brown, 10% carpet python. They interbreed, you know. There's no antivenom for the hybrids. That's why everyone on this site is so anti-hybrids.
