A scrub python was discovered by police blocking both sides of the road near Cairns, Qld.

The police stopped traffic to let the snake be on its way.

Scrub pythons grow much larger but unfortunately they have very poor road sense, I imagine if you are that big you/they possibly think they own

the road, and end up road kill.

Long ago carpet snakes another snake in the python family were welcomed to live in the rafters of stables, they kept the mice under control and

are perfectly harmless if left alone.

Why were the police blocking both sides of the road? That must be why the poor scrub python couldn't get through. ; )

Here one story from ABC News.


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Holy cow. Look at the length compared to the man.

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

Sorry, this came up in my feed for grammar questions... so I was just joking about the unintended ambiguity of the first sentence!
