Hi,
I'm looking to get my first carpet python after years of keeping boas and other reptiles. I've seen a few pictures of carpet pythons over the years and what I love most about them is that prominent heavy-built head with those beautiful big cat's eyes :)
So my question is, what species has the biggest heaviest head and the most striking eyes ?
Cheers !

Hey mate! Awesome to see some people from overseas getting into carpets! If your looking for a big boofy one id get a murray darling carpet (Morelia spilota metcalfei) or a coastal carpet (Morelia spilota mcdowelli)

Coastals get slightly longer than murray darlings but murray darlings are more heavy and chunky. Hope this helps! :)

Coastal can be quite chunky too but I do adore the menacing face of the Murray Darling.
My boy is around 8.5ft.
