WHAT IS THIS GIANT?

Has anyone seen this photo?
http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/kingbrown.asp

Claims of it being a King Brown seem wrong.
I would guess it is a Python or a King Cobra, anybody have any ideas?

The caption says it is from Branxton NSW Australia.

Thanks

Re: Michigan Herpetology

On a side note to Michigan, I was in Florday June 1st, 2010, and after a heavy rainstorm, the resort was overrun by these creatures. Can anyone ID this frog/toad?

Re: ROCK PYTHON invades Florida

Many of the Burmese Pythons that escaped and established breeding populations, were freed during a massive hurricane that went through southern Florida. Not totally the fault of irresponsible pet owners. http://www.reptileknowledge.com/articles/article22.php To answer these questions, we must go bac...

Re: Michigan Herpetology

The locals still hunt them here in Michigan. They are still very common however, the technique is to find a lake, locate a muskrat lodge dug in the lake's bank, and stick your hand in there, grab the turtle by the tail and pull it out. One such local recieved five stitches on his hand last September...

Re: Michigan Herpetology

Here is a Common Snapping Turtle I ran into June 10th 2010, in Clare County, Michigan He/she was near the road, so I thought I would lure it away. (which I did successfully) Here is a video of him trying to kill my shoe. Clearly shows the speed of their attack. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SsgYza...

Re: ROCK PYTHON invades Florida

Recently, on the History Channel, MONSTERQUEST had a show about giant, invasive pythons invading the entire southern half of the United States. They even went so far as to say that there could be breeding populations of Pythons in the sewer systems of northern cities, and sent an explorer into Centr...

Re: Don Shultz sit in

Don and crew were here for 1 part of that series, want to know if it was staged? :) I'd like to know, especially since DON SCHULTZ told me, when I asked if they used any captive snakes for their shoots: "Well if the crew finds a snake, then I will say "Devon found this snake"". ...

Re: Don Shultz sit in

What is this Austin Stevens show you are talking about?
Has it come to USA yet?

Also, On Don Schultz' show WILD RECON Tuesday, he was in S. Africa, He said "500 Species have gone extinct in thet last 20 years in S. Africa" is this true? It seems awfully high.

Re: ROCK PYTHON invades Florida

Here is an article contradicting the USGS claim that Burmese pythons would expand throughout the southern United States. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0002931 Here is the USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) press release. http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1875

ROCK PYTHON invades Florida

First it was the Burmese Python, now it is the African Rock Python.

As usual, the evil snake owner, unable to handle the snake is responsible, according to the article.

Re: Remembering a legend...

Does anyone know if the Giant Rock Python (12 footer maybe?) that Dr. Brady Barr caught was wild or a captive? It was the one where he said the local tribe was going to find one for him, and they put a hide cover on their hand and stuck it in the hole, and it bit the hide cover, and they pulled it o...
