Here’s hoping that once I’ve settled down a bit I’ll be able to pick up a bredli from Henry Piorun, because I just adore these guys. I’ve grown pretty fond of everything in the genus, but bredli are so underrated in my opinion and aesthetically speaking, definitely tied for my favourite Morelia (with boeleni).
Also referred to as Centralian Carpet Python,Morelia bredli (Pythonidae) is an Australian python species with a small natural range, contained entirely within the south central region of the Northern Territory.
The most obvious thing about the appearance of Morelia bredli is the reddish color seen in some specimens. The reddish base color is typically offset by an irregular banded pattern. The banding is pale in color and is bordered by a row of black scales.
This is one of the largest members of the carpet python complex and is only eclipsed in size by the largest coastal carpet specimens. Large examples can grow to lengths of 2.4 m or more and are very robust.
