What the hell is wrong with you, government?!
It tis a very large file, so here is the link :)
Boelen’s python (Morelia boeleni) is a non-venomous python with amazing coloration. At first the snake appears to be just black and white patterned, but on closer inspection - and in just the right light - the black scales take on an iridescent sheen, kinda like an oil on the ground.
Papua New Guinea holds this creature in the highest esteem, giving it the best legal protection possible. Locally it is also known as the Blu Moran or Papa Graun.
It’s usually found on the forest floor, though it’s known to be a really skilled tree climber.
Sadly, this species is threatened by the illegal pet trade, and I can see why. Snake lovers would be jumping at the oprotunity to hold this rainbow fellow over their shoulders.
