Python Eats Wallaby On Australian Golf Course And We’ve Got The Pics

A round of golf was unexpectedly interrupted by an intrusion on the fairway that would only ever happen on an Australian course. Golfers were shocked when they arrived at the 17th hole to find a giant python feasting on a wallaby.

The Paradise Palms golf course in Cairns in north Queensland is no stranger to wildlife, but the 13-foot scrub python that came slithering onto the fairway was the biggest spotted yet. Golfers, who stumbled upon the scene, witnessed a half an hour struggle between the reptile and marsupial.


Robert Willemse, a Paradise Palms member for almost 10 years, told The Cairns Post, “They [other golfers] shouted us over and said there’s a python having a go at a wallaby.” Willemse said that the snake managed to latch onto the wallaby’s head and the wrestling duo rolled into the middle of the 17th hole fairway.

“The python swallowed it and rolled into the creek, then snuck back into the bush,” Willemse said. “It must have gone for a rest for the next few days.”
