Carpet Python nearly icy due to the cold

Like all reptiles, snakes are ectotherms, which means they regulate their body temperature according to the temperature in the environment. During warm days they can be very active, but preserve their energy when it is cool. During the recent cold throughout the region, snake sightings have reduced significantly. Those that are found by our clients are often trying to seek warmth on rooves or inside. Our snake catcher Brandon relocated this icy juvenile from a client’s home in Sunnybank Hills. It was so still and cold he initially thought it was dead! He managed to find a sunny spot to release it in the nearby bushland.
