Tirari a new home
Tirari, a snake ambassador for Arid Recovery, our respected partner, has outgrown her vivarium so needs a new home!
Tirari is a woma python that has helped hundreds of people understand snakes better. She shows that snakes can be gentle and respectful beings and how important they are to our environment.
To say ‘thanksssssssss’ to Tirari for her awesome work, we launched Reptile Month for February, where 100% sales revenue of our reptile EUGYs - Crocodile, Tuatara, and Mosa - from www.eugy.com to this cause.
Lots of EUGY friends helped with this cause. We ended up donating AUD$800 - the full costs required to build the vivarium!
A special thanks to our partners at Arid Recovery, an independent non-profit organisation in South Australia, that runs a wildlife reserve in arid’s north, saving species through scientific research and conservation efforts.
Get to know Woma Pythons (Aspidites ramsayi)!
They are nocturnal snakes
Australian Native species
In critically endangered status
They are ‘pitless pythons’ due to the absence of heat sensing pits which other pythons have along the lips
They are non-venomous snakes that use their shovel-like nose to push their prey against the walls they have burrowed
