First python call out

Postby GCol » Wed Aug 18, 2010 11:29 am

I was going through some old photos on my computer and came across these.I caught this guy a couple years ago on one of the farms outside my town, it was the first Rock python i had ever caught(:ImageImageImageImageI battled to get my bag back as well :D. He was released safely the next morning on a farm on the other side of town.
