Artist's Description

Woma Python, AS Reptile Centre, Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia.
Taken with Canon EOS550D. EFS 18-55mm Lens.
These snakes prey upon a variety of terrestrial vertebrates such as small mammals, ground birds and lizards. They catch much of their prey in burrows where there is not enough room to maneuver coils around their prey; instead, the woma pushes a loop of its body against the animal so it is pinned against the side of the burrow. Many adult womas are covered in scars from retaliating rodents as this technique doesn’t kill prey as quickly as normal constriction.
