Meeting a giant reticulated python

A last minute highlight from the forests of Bala last night. Moments after having said “I can’t believe we haven’t seen a snake tonight” I turn a corner to see this gigantic Reticulated python slowly making its way across the road. Without doubt the largest snake I have ever seen. We estimate that it was close to six meters in length and incredibly thick. I managed only a few quick photos before it slowly turned back and retreated up a hillside. I doubt I will ever see such a snake again..

More photos from the trip to follow…
