I love this photo of the Carpet Python that I took after the alarming Galah eating indicent, and wanted to post it seperately to the other photos. They really are a beautiful snake and I enjoyed observing it for quite some time. This photo is one of my favourites. Judi.

Since we have been living full-time at out Kleinton Property we have been lucky enough to have seen a wider variety of animals than we did previously on day visits. The most unfortunate find was a large carpet snake that I found inside our Galah's cage early one morning a few weeks ago, and alas no galahs any more. After consuming my two "rescuee'" Galah's it was then trapped in the cage unable to get out. It was rather a shock and would have been far more interesting if I wasn't so upset. Anyway i opened the door of the cage and let it out and watched it for around an hour and a half to see where it went etc, a really amazing creature that was just after the too tempting "Easy meal".
The two Galahs that I had were ones that I had taken on from previous owners that no longer wanted them. One in particular was rescued from a wedge-tailed eagle in Western Qld over twenty years ago. Very tragic end for a bird that usually out-lives it's owners!

|Granny's Cloak Moth|
|Unknown White Moth with Orange & Brown Specks.|
Granny's Cloak Moth is a large brownish grey moth with eye spots and scalloped pattern. These are the large fluttering moths you often see in dark places around the house. From a distance it looks like a boring dark brown moth, but up close it has a delicate pattern.
In the bush it rests in hollow trees or caves.
|Common Name:||Granny's Cloak Moth|
