 Liasis olivaceus, commonly called the olive python,[2] is a python species found in Australia

With adults reaching over 4 m in length, this is Australia's second-largest snake species (surpassed only by the scrub python). Its high midbody dorsal scale count, 61-72, makes the skin look smoother than that of other pythons. The number of ventral scales is 355-377.[2] The colour pattern is a uniform chocolate brown to olive green, while the belly is usually cream coloured.[4]

Unfortunately, this species is occasionally confused with the venomous king brown snake, Pseudechis australis, and is often mistakenly killed.

This snake is found in Australia in Western AustraliaNorthern Territory and Queensland. The type locality given is "North Australia; Port Essington" (Northern Territory, Australia).[1]

Habitat[edit]

It occurs in rocky areas, gorges and especially rocky areas near sources of water. Typically, shelter is sought in caves and rock crevices, but individuals have also been found in hollow logs and in burrows under rocks.[2]

Feeding[edit]

The diet consists of birdsmammals and other reptiles,[2] including rock-wallabiesfruit batsducks and spinifex pigeons. They prefer to lie in wait next to animal trails to ambush their prey. Alternatively, they are strong swimmers and also hunt in waterholes, striking at prey from under the water.[4] They are also known to prey on monitor lizards and crocodiles.

 My family had a pet gopher snake, named Gilmore, when I was a little kid. He was mostly my older brother's pet but got to play with him too. Gilmore would hang around my neck and kiss me on the ear. His skin was cool and dry (not slimy or anything) and he would always try to cuddle into my neck or underarm - any place warm, because snakes are always looking for warmth (he'd try to sneak into my shirt, too). Snake kisses are delicate little tickles, and very nice. 

(Photo is from Flickr - not me, not Gilmore. I was probably not quite this cute, but Gilmore was just as sweet.)

Snakes have got to scare me more than anything else! I manned up and took my fear on the Mekong Delta in Vietnam were a family kept two of these beauts as pets! The thing weighed a tonne and I was more than happy to get it off my neck! My girlfriend managed to set my camera in video mode rather than camera mode which made the experience last longer than it needed to!
