At work I have received a photo in a joke e-mail entitled 'Kimberley Fishing'. Unfortunately it's one of these e-mails that does the rounds and the source is impossible to track down. However it shows an enormous Olive Python, by my reckoning at least 25 feet long. The snake is in the process of dragging a fully-grown dead Wallaroo up to its rock-ledge from a rock-pool.


I was wondering if anyone connected with herpentological research, or just interested, might like to see these photo (it's too big to post to the group, but I could reduce it to about 250K to e-mail to interested parties).
