Python Perches on Fence
Occurred on April 12, 2020 / Townsville, Queensland, Australia
Info from Licensor: "A very large scrub Python (approx 5 metres) who is known in our little beach community as Ally, came to try and get herself a chicken dinner as she has done often over the last 6-8 years. My 15 year old daughter, Donna, found her in the nesting box. As usual, Donna and I moved her on by banging our didgeridoo on the ground to cause vibrations and giving her a little tickle on the tail. She left along the fence, taking her time, completely unfazed by our presence. Last year she came back every night for two weeks looking for a feed. We were in a bad drought so she was obviously very hungry! No doubt, 'She'll be back.'"
