Mr Cranky Pants

Olive Python - Liasis olivaceus

Best to stay Clear of Mr Cranky Pants - he’s nice to look at from a distance, but we will keep him clear of everyone during our presentations - while he is non venemous, he has a very firm grip which is not easily undone. His natural habitat in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. In the wild they can eat birds, mammals and other reptiles, including rock-wallabies, fruit bats, ducks and pigeons. They prefer to lie in wait next to animal trails to ambush their prey. They are also strong swimmers and canhunt in waterholes, catching their lunch from under the water. They have also been known to prey on monitor lizards and crocodiles. Mr Cranky pants lives on a delicious diet of Rats and Mice
