WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is home to a variety of snakes, spiders and other crawly creatures. Meet our diamond pythons and brown snakes eye-to-eye and discover crazy 'jaw'-some facts at our new keeper snake talk!
1. MEET OUR STUNNING DIAMOND PYTHONS
The Diamond Python is a medium to large snake found in coastal areas and adjacent ranges of south-eastern Australia. Diamond Pythons are quite variable in colour and pattern, typically being dark olive to black in colour. Along the body and tail are clusters of yellow or cream scales that form ‘rosettes’ that look a bit like diamonds – hence their common name ‘Diamond Python’.
2. COME EYE-TO-EYE WITH OUR DEADLY EASTERN BROWN SNAKE
The Eastern Brown Snake is probably the most frequently encountered venomous snake in Eastern Australia, and is considered the World’s second deadliest snake.
Agricultural areas are often a haven for invasive rats and mice that damage crops. Eastern browns have capitalised upon this abundant food source and are often considered beneficial by many farmers as great pest control!
3. DISCOVER OUR WOMA PYTHON
Our Woma Python William can be found in our 'Nightfall' zone as they are nocturnal! Woma Pythons are often mistaken for the venomous western brown snake however these creatures are non-venomous! As their burrows are usually small, if prey finds itself encroaching on their territory the python will squish is against the wall to constrict it instead of wrapping itself around it. Due to this method, many Woma Pythons have scars along their bodies!
