Taken near Yeppoon in Qld, this 2m carpet snake was sunning herself by the side of the road.

Nice shot! Looks like a fair size looking at his head thats for sure..
Not the biggest I’ve seen… even just this weekend we saw one that was bigger. We got a few shots as it disappeared up the drain pipe, but they didn’t end up as clear as this one. If you look very closely here you can just see some blood under her chin. We weren’t sure at first if she’d been hit by a car, but she looked fine and she moved away into the grass easily. In the end we decided that the blood was the remains of her last meal. Thanks for the comment Steve :o)
