Carpet snake IMG 1010 - This Australian reptile, photographed in the wild, is a non-venomous python that kills its prey by constriction. It was disturbed while hiding among a clutter of fallen palm fronds, and although it became extremely aggressive and struck out at the photographer with alarming speed, this relatively common species posed no danger other than to instill a momentary touch of fear.
