South-west woma

Australian Geographic - - Reader's Photos - by Ross McGib­bon

This rare and en­dan­gered south-west woma ( As­pidites ram­sayi) was pho­tographed on the Peron Penin­sula, WA. This non-ven­omous and vir­tu­ally harm­less python has al­most dis­ap­peared from its orig­i­nal dis­tri­bu­tions in south-western Aus­tralia due to habi­tat de­struc­tion for agri­cul­ture and the in­tro­duc­tion of feral an­i­mals.
