Scrub python climbing a tree with ease.

The amethystine python, named for the milky iridescent sheen on its scales, is the 6 largest snake in the world and the largest snake on the Australian continent.

They are non-venomous, they kill their prey by constriction – a method employed by all snakes in the python family.

Constriction essentially cuts off bloodflow (and therefore, oxygen) to the vital organs, leading to unconsciousness, followed by cardiac arrest, and eventually death.

Australian pythons prey on birds, bats, rats, possums and other small mammals, and larger specimens have been observed consuming wallabies.
