READY FOR AMBUSH!
This is a Stimson’s Python (Antaresia stimsoni orientalis) from Stonehenge, QLD. When the sun sets these nocturnal hunters emerge from their shelter sites to prey on small mammals, reptiles, frogs and birds. Using their forked tongue they pick up scent trails of animals and begin their hunt. One of their predatory strategies is to position themselves along a known path animals are using and wait in ambush, similar to what you see in this photo. Without moving a muscle, the snake can wait patiently like this for hours until an animal comes within striking distance. As they are non-venomous the only way they can acquire their prey is to bite and hold on with their many small sharp teeth. Within seconds the python wraps as many coils around the animal as possible, tightening until the animal either passes out or suffocates. As soon as the prey item goes limp and no signs of life are detected, the snake will consume the victim whole.

Which is the only surviving wonder of the ancient world 🌍? The Great pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now Cairo, Egypt 🇪🇬, in Africa. It is the only remaining member of the seven wonders of the ancient world 🗺. It is believed to have been built as a tomb for the fourth dynastic Egyptian pharaoh Khufu and constructed over a 20 years period concluding around 2560 BC, when it was built, the great pyramid was 145.75 metre high. Over the years, it lost 💯 metres off its top. It ranked as the tallest structure of the earth for more than 43 centuries.
It covers a ground area of 13.1 acres, composed of some 2.3 million limestone blocks which average two - and - a - half tonnes each, enough stone to build a wall of foot-square cubes two-thirds around the globe at the equator, a distance of 16,600 miles ( 26,500 kms). The temperature inside the Great Pyramid of Giza is at a constant 68° F.
