My first call-out for the new season. The huge snake turned out to be a juvenile H. hemachatus.

You killed it!!! Look it is lying all twisted up. Shame on you. You should name it Lazarus because it looks alive in the next photo!

This one has a nice reddish colour. The base colour seems to be red because the black speckling shines through?

So cute, don't you just want to lovingly stroke him under his chin?
The last pic is exceptional.
