JUNGLE CARPET PYTHON
(Morelia spilota cheynei)
(Status uncertain)

Jungle Carpet Python Morelia spilota spilota
Not all Jungle Carpets Pythons (Morelia spilota cheynei) are as brightly coloured as this one.

  
Distribution of the Jungle Carpet Python (Morelia spilota cheynei) is Dark Blue (Qld) in the map above and is approximate only!
Note that the distribution map is a very rough guide only, in some areas there are intergrades between the subspecies, and snakes from those areas may be hard to categorize as they may have characteristics of more than one subspecies.
Also note that the Centralian Carpet Snake, (Morelia bredli) was downgraded to a subspecies for a while but has now regained its full species status and is not shown on this map, - Click here for distribution map of (Morelia bredli)
