 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.

I have had a number of different snakes around my neck. They don't scare me at all. In fact I think snakes are awesome

The snake decided to try and strangle me and then when the keeper tried to take the snake away he squeezed ahold of my head and I was more concerned my eyebrows had smudged!

 Mexico. The experience was pretty cool. Only happened for a few seconds. Long enough for my mom to snap a quick picture and then hand the snake back to the handler. It was a huge snake though. Majestic, almost. I don't have access to that picture, though so here's one of Adrienne from Cycle 1 of ANTM.

I was in South Africa, volunteering at Karongwe Private Game Reserve. On one of the early days, we took a trip to a reptile centre and got some reptile and spider/scorpion training and some snake handling. I was most surprised by how soft and smooth the Boa was. Great experience!

 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.)
