The python, which was 2.5 - 3 m long, investigated the possibility of breaking in through the screen door, but gave up after a few attempts and found a more suitable place to hide in the carport. It is still there, lurking behind some shelving. Although I'm delighted to have a python around the place, I am concerned about the pademelons. They don't always pay attention.
Memo to self: Clean up around the house so people don't think you live in a hovel.
