Trail Run – Jumped Over A Carpet Python

A couple of years ago now I was running around the trails in the Bayview Conservation Park and my heart stopped as I saw a very large snake which was crossing the trail.  The trail was about 3m wide and as I was running down a hill I only saw the snake very late so I had to jump over the snake and stop.  I saw that it was a Carpet Python which is a constrictor and is not venomous.  So I pulled, got as close as I could and took a short video.  The snake was the largest I have even seen and it was funny because the snake just slowly moved across the trail and into the bush.  The snake was not at all worried about my presences.   It was a beautiful experience seeing this snake free living in the bush.
