Wild Diamond Python

I found the diamond python in a tree hollow in the middle of a stream in the blue mountains near a place called acacia campground at about 3:15pm on November 9th 2018

. The temperature was about 79F (26C) outside the tree hollow and the diamond python was 86F (30C). The snake was in shed, I believe it was female and I’d guess between 1600-1900g. I went back at about 8:30pm and recorded a temp inside the tree hollow of about 58F (14.5C). I took another reading at 5:30 the next morning and recorded a temp of 41F (5C) corners of the log were just a degree or two above freezing.


Absolutely crazy the kind of temperatures they tolerate in their natural habitat. And a beautiful specimen too.
