Amethyst Pythons shine in coital coiling
Coital coiling by Amethyst Pythons (Morelia amethistina) in Tyto. First sighted four-metres plus female and smaller male close to main entry track early yesterday.
No hurried sex for pythons so little changed till mid-morning today. Male vanished first from the head-high pandanus clump. Two hours later the female also was gone. Perhaps she'll produce and care for her eggs in the wetlands. But it would need a microchip and tracking to confirm such a hope.
