COASTAL CARPET PYTHON
(or Coastal Carpet Snake, includes Brisbane Carpet Snakes)
Morelia spilota mcdowelli
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, M. bredli is now M.spilota bredli and is not shown on this map, - Click here for distribution map of M.s.bredli
LINKS OF INTEREST
The Jaguar Python or RPM (Reduced Pattern Morph) was bred from Coastal Carpet Pythons. Although carpet pythons color and pattern varies considerably in the wild, Jaguar Pythons do not occur naturally in the wild. Jaguars have also been crossed with other carpet python subspecies. Jaguar Carpet Pythons also often carry a defective gene which causes unatural movement when the snake is stressed.
