Man snaps photo of cane toads hitching a ride on a 3.5m python
A man in Western Australia has taken what can only be described as “the most Australian photo of all time”.
Paul Mock, a helicopter pilot from Kununurra told Nick McCallum he was up late doing some work, when he saw the cane toads flushed out by the rain.
“It’s a picture of our resident python, called Monty, with ten male cane toads hitching a ride on his back,” he said.
“I suspect Monty has a nest near the water and they’ve decided to catch a ride with him.”

68mm just fell in the last hour at Kununurra. Flushed all the cane toads out of my brothers dam. Some of them took the easy way out – hitching a ride on the back of a 3.5m python. pic.twitter.com/P6mPc2cVS5
