Morelia spilota harrisoni - Irian Jaya Carpet Python
The "IJ" Carpet Python, Morelia spilota harrisoni, is the only Carpet Python that lives outside of Australia. Their habitat is the Island of New Guinea north of Australia, where this subspecies could be found in both countries, Indonesia in the west and Papua New Guinea in the east. They usually live in dry savannas and eucalypt forests.
With an average size of 5-6ft IJ Carpet Python stay relatively small. Their bodies show brown bands with beige to yellow areas in between, surrounded by black outlines.
