A Smooth Character

We found this chap had paid us a visit when our long billed Corella Beaky sounded the alarm. The birds were quickly rescued and we got some pics of the intruder. It was a beautiful carpet python about two meters long.

"I'm not after the birds, I just heard there was a BBQ on!"
"Why yes, I am quite a long fellow"

"I'll just spend the night if that's OK"

I understand that nearby Caboolture township got its name from the local aboriginal tribe. The name means "'place of the carpet snake". I can see why.

Anyway Readers, he stayed for a few days and has now moved on. Of course, that begs the question "where is he now?"

I'm off to shut the doors. Until next time, bye for now - Murphy.
