After my little posting foray into the VERY valid reasons I have not to camp I have decided to follow-up with the promised Python vs Crocodile that happen in Mt Isa, Queensland this week. So the battle begins:
Well so far it seems that the rather LARGE crocodile doesn’t have a lot to worry about does it. Of course in this shot we really can’t see ALL of the snake so let’s go in for a closer look shall we.
Hmm that does put a slightly different perspective on what is going on, however crocodiles are wily creatures and one of the few still left from the age of the dinosaur that has never had to evolve or change to live in its environment so maybe things will work out for our fearsome friend.
Hmm perhaps not. Oh well down the hatch. This little python has had his fill I would say and will be off home to sit and digest for the next week or two at least. Let’s say goodbye as it goes on its way (and pray to whichever deity comes to mind that it doesn’t reside in the roof of a house where most carpet pythons do tend to live, hope this one lives in a cave or at least a silo).
So just in case there were any doubters as to the lack of spine on my part when it comes to camping all I have to say is – Have you been paying attention? I’m half the size of that crocodile, in fact that croc could have made a meal of me easily and look what happened to it.
Once again I would like to point out that these shots weren’t taken in the back of beyond and while Mt Isa is a country town it is still a rather large town with mines attached in and around the surrounding area. Go further out west or into the gulf country you can just about double the size of everything.
