Tinsel the Diamond Python

Thanks to Jules from Australian Reptile Park for bringing in Tinsel the Diamond Python, along with a Stimson Wheat Belt Python and a deadly Tiger Snake to Channel 9 Mornings. As we found out with Sonia Kruger’s snake phobia, these guys aren’t for everyone but these Diamonds are such beautiful creatures. They all have their own personality, are quite calm and good to handle once they’re comfortable and feel safe. Diamond’s areĀ  found around Sydney and Eastern NSW so if you find one in your roof or local area they’re actually doing you a favour eradicating rodents. They are constrictor snakes so don’t worry about venom.

BTW, Tinsel decided to off load a massive poo after the segment all over the studio floor, the nerves must have got to her.
