The Diamond Python occurs naturally between the Queensland and Victoria border and the Coastal Carpet Python occurs right down the east coast of Queensland and northern NSW. In the area between Coffs Harbour and Newcastle the colours of the pythons are not true to each subspecies, they are mixed, showing traits of both subspecies. This is known as an intergrade, not a hybird which is the result of two different species mating.
The females grow larger than the males, they can reach 8-9 feet in length. Described as semi-arboreal the climb shrub and rock faces, mostly moving around at night.
