AustraliaZoo says

(Liasis fuscus)

The Water Python’s scales are an iridescent dark grey colour which reflects the colours of the rainbow. An aboriginal myth tells the story of the Rainbow Serpent (Water Python) which created the rivers and valleys of northern Australia with it’s brightly coloured body.

Habitat

Water Pythons inhabit freshwater swamps, lagoons, creeks and rivers across the tropical north of Australia. Water Pythons have also been found in the Torres Straits and Papua New Guinea. They are very fond of water and in the wild frequently use water as an escape route.

Diet

Water Pythons feed on rats, bandicoots, wallabies, water birds (and their eggs) and has also be seen feeding on small Freshwater Crocodiles. Their prey is usually ambushed when it comes to drink. A juvenile Water Python’s diet consists of frogs, fish and lizards.

Breeding

Breeding tends to commence with a flurry of mating activity in February/March with eggs being laid some weeks later. The female Water Python will usually lay between 11 and 19 eggs.

Snake Shark

 

A REAL life sea monster “from the age of the dinosaurs” has caused waves in the scientific world after being caught off the Algarve coast.

The ultra-rare frilled shark — which has a body like a snake but the jaws of a terrifying sea predator — was hauled out of the water by EU fish stock researchers, reports The Sun.

The Portuguese Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere have now dubbed the shark a “living fossil” as the species dates back 80 million years.

This makes it one of very few creatures from the dinosaur times that are still around, with the shark discovered off the coast of Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

The male fish measured 1.5 metres in length and was captured at a depth of 701 metres off the resort of Portimao.

Another ‘snake shark’ was caught in Australia. Check out the video below.
