And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.
Banjo Paterson (1889)

Python Swallows Large Monitor
We know that snakes such as pythons can distend their jaws to swallow large prey, but this Black-headed Python really wanted to see how far it could go with this Yellow-spotted Monitor. These pictures were taken at a northern minesite in Western Australia during a survey a little while ago.
Good to see the workers pegged off the road area till the python had finished it's meal and was on it's way. That meal should keep him (or her) going for a few months!
