Rough Scaled Python by oOBrieOo Rough Scaled Python by oOBrieOo
Rough Scaled Python, Morelia carinata

This is an extremely rare animal and the only one in the world outside of Australia's borders. Hell, even inside australia its very rare. Its a Morelia species, related to Carpet pythons, Boelens pythons and very closely related to th Green Tree Pythons. Found only in a tiny location in northern australia, it lives amongst rocks and cliffs.

I was very privileged to have this opportunity.

Great photo of a very beautiful python. I love their bluish eyes, although I have never seen one in person. Yes, they are rare here in Aust.

Reptile Gardens in South Dakota. I'm pretty good friends with the curator so he let me fart around the zoo after hours. As for owning one, I wish. His are the only ones in the world outside of Australia, and he's under strict contract to never let any leave his possession.
