A juvenile woma python earns his defensive stripes
“The beautiful woma python (Aspidites ramsayi) averages about 1.5m, especially here out on the Port Hedland (Western Australia) sandplain,” says Adam. “They are very broad bodied and beautifully marked. This one was relatively young being about 50cm in length (SVL – snout-vent length) and with a determined attitude of youngsters! They prey on a variety of terrestrial vertebrates but predominately hunt down other reptiles. These are definitely one of my favourite python species in Australia!”
