amazing buttress on the Black Booyong
this beautiful stone wall leads next, into the Mountain Gardens.
Are you ready for this?
A surprise awaits ...
uh-oh, wasn't quite expecting this huge python!
When discussed later with staff, it had already been seen by others too and concensus is that it's so sluggish because it's having difficulty digesting whatever it's eaten. Judging it's size it's thought it may have taken a pademelon. Pademelon's are a small marsupial related to wallaby and kangaroo.
With the colder weather now, that's not good and could potentially be fatally detrimental.
It was pretty much at this point that I decided it wasn't so important afterall to continue on through the botanic garden....
