Carpet Python Consumes Possum in Client’s House
Coastal Carpet Pythons are known to eat very large prey. This snake captured and consumed a Common Brushtail Possum inside a client’s house in Corinda. We are called to removed Pythons in the process of eating possums fairly often, but very rarely Inside. The client believed she’d left a door open earlier in the day, and the resident possum that rests under the verandah had disappeared. Both the possum and snake must have entered and their fates intwined under the tv cabinet.
When called to a snake part way through eating an animal, we do our best to way until it has fully consumed it. Snakes predating is a natural process and keeps the suburban possum population in check.
