Farewell to Yasi our beautiful Carpet Python

Last month, sadly our beautiful carpet python Yasi passed away.

Yasi was an absolutely beautiful snake, who was equally adored by staff and visitors.

All of us loved him, so we thought we would share this video we made of him:

Carpet pythons are non-venomous and found in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia as well as on the Northern Solomon Islands and the Bismarck Archipelago.

Their scientific name is Morelia Spilota, while they are commonly also referred to as carpet snakes or diamond pythons.
