This was sent in to the lone Ranger. The Goanna is a metre long, and this Fine Dining experience took something like 5 hours to complete.

It was so amazing that a road crew set up markers to divert the traffic...






Full, he heads off, meter long goanna aboard, six months to digest... Shocked



BIG Country.... BIG Lizard..... BIG Snake..... BIIIIIIIIIIIIG Meal...!

The snake is a Black Headed Python, they actually prefer to eat other reptiles and they have a strong desire to eat other snakes, they have been know to go for a few months from birth, waiting to devour another snake, if I remember correctly they prefer the poisonous types.

I used to travell 2200kms weekly throught Central Queensland and came accross these snakes regularly. They will make excellent pets, though when you see that "Black" head it makes you back right off, as it does not look anything like a Python head.

Gould's Goanna's taken west of the CSR out towards the Carnarvon Ranges in WA. Two big males sorting out who gets first dibs at mating with the nearby lady.



Nope, they ain't mating and they are certainly ain't dancing
