UBER PYTHON PIGGY BACK RIDE BY TOADS IN AUSTRALIA

A quintessentially Australian photo which could only have come from WA’s Kimberley has gone viral, as social media across the world marvelled at a python playing pick-up to a bunch of amorous cane toads.

Helicopter pilot Paul Mock snapped the photo of the olive python — named Monty, of course — onboard was a contingent of cane toads on its back in the wake of an inundation of 68mm rain at his Kununurra WA property on Monday.

Mr Mock doesn’t have social media but decided to send the picture on to his brother Andrew, who quickly uploaded it to Twitter where it caused a storm.

Brown snake and family dog caught on security cam in fight at Truro home North of Adelaide South Australia

A FIGHT between a brown snake and a Japanese hunting dog has played out in front of a security camera at a home north of Adelaide.

Nine-year-old Chardy, a shiba inu, grabbed the metre-long brown snake as it entered Teresa and Aaron Barnden’s front yard at Truro, last week.

For more than two minutes, dog and snake joust and strike, with both appearing to land blows.

Chardy keeps pulling the snake back to the lawn, immediately in front of a security camera in a nearby window of the house.

PYTHON BITES MAN WHEN HE GOES TO SLEEP-PILLOW TALK-SNAKE & HUMAN AUSTRALIA

The Trinity Beach resident was bitten by a spotted python.

A north Queensland man has been bitten by a metre-long snake curled up under a pillow on his bed.

The Trinity Beach resident was going to sleep on Friday night when he slid his hand under the covers, only to get the fright of his life.

Cairns snake catcher Matt Hagan was called to remove the 1.2-metre reptile and comfort the man and his wife, who had been rattled by his screams.

“His wife was in the lounge room at the time and said he was making some noises that weren’t very compatible with sleep,” Mr Hagan said.

“When I got there, his wife was steadfastly refusing to go back inside the house … she suggested we either burn it down or they were moving to New Zealand.”

The spotted python left the man, who the snake catcher referred to as Jack, with a small nip on the finger before quickly retreating to a bedside table.

The couple’s daughter, Tayla-Jae Todd, commented on the snake catcher’s Facebook page.

“I live in England and mum called me at 8am,” she said.

“I thought someone had died but in the end I died laughing!”

Mr Hagan said it was one of the fattest snakes he’d had to relocate.

A warm bed would seemingly be the ideal spot to curl up for a winter hibernation, but Mr Hagan said snakes are still active because of unseasonably warm weather.

“We’re still getting calls that pets are being eaten, which we usually see die off around this time,” he said.

Mr Hagan also relocated a coastal carpet python from a boat at Kuranda over the weekend.

Python Eats Huge Porcupine, Suffers the Consequences big time

Porcupines are often attacked by other animals that are trying to cash in on a huge feast. However, it’s a decision that is usually regretted instantly.

Case in point: this African rock python made a meal out of a porcupine at a game reserve in South Africa, only to suffer the consequences a day later.

Once the snake was cut open, it was clear that the porcupine’s quills caused fatal internal injuries.

Photos below reveal the connection with a python & a porcupine
