I was taking my dog for a drive/walk yesterday arvo and something appeared mascot like above the bullbar
So pulled over and



It was some kind of python or tree snake emerging from through the grill

Had to wait about 10 minutes for it slide out onto the bonnet

About 6ft or 1.8 flicked it off with a stick and on my way
Needless to say I checked the ute out pretty good when I got home

That's the GMH version of a Dodge Viper or Ford Cobra engine swap  Grin.

Glad he was a pie-thon and not one of those king brown wiggly sticks.

Cheers,

 My son keeps an 8ft python in his bedroom and has done for about 6years . Here's a few facts you may like to know . These animals are territorial and if removed can return many miles to their chosen domain . This is a good thing because of a slow metabolism if a venomous snake bites a python it has little to no effect ,but if the reverse happens the venomous snake will die of its wounds becoming infected , therefore having a python around can deter most venomous snakes .Haydn

Completes the trilogy- snakes on a plane, snakes on a train, snakes on a ute!

Ran over a snake in the north flinders ranges in my HX panno on a hot day years ago. Eighty kays of track later pulled up at Copley roadhouse opened the door and got out. Four foot brown hovered its head out between inner and outer guard. Left the door open and went in to the roadhouse. Manager went out and dispatched it with a stick. Must have flicked up into engine bay and slithered between the panels. Never run one over since.

Around the same time the neighbor was driving off in his XC coupe when he heard strange noises. Not surprising you say as it was a F0úD. Pulled over and out jumps out cat and runs off. Must have found a warm spot under the bonnet as it was s cold night.
