Sometimes one image is not enough to tell the whole story. Although the inclusion of something for scale (the tyre of machinery)  for reference assists in identifying the size and thereby the age of the snake, it was difficult to get the full picture until a close up was examined. What we then found was potentially mortal combat between two of Australia's dangerous creatures. See additional images.
