The separation of the scales when snakes eat is just breathtaking (and kind of icky, haha). It never ceases to amaze me, how they can swallow such enormous food items. I mean, it’s like I would try to swallow a whole chicken. It wouldn’t work! And also, it would just look like I was making out with it - and that would be embarrassing.
This week’s reader photo of a woma python (Aspidites ramsayi) was captured by photographer Adam Brice @adam_brice_wild_life. “The beautiful woma python averages about 1.5m, especially here out on the Port Hedland (Western Australia) sandplain,” says Adam. “They are very broad bodied and beautifully marked. This one was relatively young being about 50cm in length (SVL – snout-vent length) and with a determined attitude of youngsters! They prey on a variety of terrestrial vertebrates but predominately hunt down other reptiles. These are definitely one of my favourite python species in Australia!” To feature on our IG feed, head to our website and upload your reader photo or tag #ausgeo#wildlifephotography#australia#australiansnakes#python#woma#attitude#womapython#snake#herpetology

The only thing more enjoyable than breeding snakes is finding them in their natural environments. Have you donated to your local #herpetological#conservation organization in honor of Earth Day? It took us 2 solid days to find *ONE* of these snakes in areas that once boasted dense populations of them. As much as we love being breeders, we do NOT want to see a day when the only way to enjoy these animals is at a zoo! The world's largest #rattlesnake , the #easterndiamondback . 👑🐍💖

N° 12 - IL PECCATO
C’è un fascino per il proibito che lo rende indicibilmente desiderabile. 🇮🇹🖤
There is a fascination with the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.🇬🇧🖤
Hindusim and snake (Please check all pics, I didn't have good camera but I managed) hope you will like it.
These pics I took last year, I scared with this reptile but if camera in hands no fear.
A snake is also very sensitive to certain energies. Shiva has the snake around his throat. It is not just symbolic. There is a whole lot of science behind it. There are 114 chakras in the energy body. Out of these 114, people are usually talking about the seven fundamental chakras in the system. Among these seven fundamental ones, the vishuddhi chakra is located in the pit of your throat. This particular chakra is very strongly associated with the snake. The vishuddhi is about stopping poison, and a snake carries poison. All these things are connected.
The word vishuddhi literally means “filter.” If your vishuddhi becomes powerful, you have the ability to filter everything that enters you. Shiva’s center is supposed to be vishuddhi, and he is also known as Vishakantha or Neelakantha because he filters all the poison. He doesn’t allow it to enter his system. Poisons are not necessarily that which you may consume through food. Poisons can enter you in so many ways: a wrong thought, a wrong emotion, a wrong idea, a wrong energy or a wrong impulse can poison your life. If your vishuddhi is active, it filters everything. It saves you from all these influences. In other words, once vishuddhi is very active, that person is so powerful within himself that whatever is around him does not influence him anymore. He is established within himself. He tends to become a very powerful being.
