Black-headed Python Featured Melanocephalus Print

Black-headed Python

DH-3191
Black-headed Python
Kalumburu Rd, Kimberleys, Western Australia
Aspidites melanocephalus
An inhabitant of drier regions of northern Australia, in seasonally arid selerophyll forests and rocky hills. Shelters in earth cracks, hollow logs, ground debris
and animal burrows. Feeds on lizards, other snakes. As they feed on reptiles they lack the heat pits of other pythons. Uses its black head in a unique way. Where other snakes need to expose their whole body to the sun, the python can leave most of its body concealed and just expose its black head to the sun. Because dark colours heat up quicker than light colours, its dark head alone can heat its whole body. On very hot days these snakes have been seen to bury their heads in sand to cool themselves. This snake is one of the traditional foods of aboriginal people of Australia.
