Thank you for listening What they eat:
Diamond pythons which have just hatched, feed mostly on small lizards. As they grow older, their diet broadens and they start to eat small birds and mammals. The adults tend to feed more on warm blooded prey. Their favourites are possums, fruit bats, and rodents. Though humans, even a child, aren't at risk, a large python may take domestic animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, or even small cats or dogs. The colour and patterns of these pythons
vary greatly, the eastern populations are pale or dark brown to olive green, with irregular, dark-edged, pale yellowish blotches.
Other populations can be grey or reddish with darker blotches, mainly the nocturnal ones, but they can be seen basking in the day. lighter parts: population is smaller
darker parts: population is larger. Where they are in Australia
