This 3 metre beauty was resting about 1 metre above my head while I was taking photos of flowers on Sunday morning.

That is ssooooo cool! All we get is the odd Ratsnake here of any size, and they only get to 8 ft. max.

We have about 3 of these in the shed at work. Mum's about this size and her babies are about half as big now.

No idea! Although that does sound familiar. JJ will know.

Cool snake. You say it's in a shed? It doesn't look like it's on a branch in a tree or anything. 3 meters is an awfully big pet!

This one is on a steel beam in the Cactus House (a shelter) at the botanical gardens.

We have some in one of the work sheds I frequent when doing my carpentry work. When I say 'shed' though ... you could just about turn a 'Semi' (Tractor/Trailer unit) around in there.
