An amazing fact is that some snakes lay eggs and some don't, and Cleo the 2.5 meter Cape York Carpet Python is actually looking for a partner which is going to be difficult. Why? Well, it seems her species lives in the tropical climate of northern Oz. Cleo is possibly the laziest snake here at the Funky Farm but she loves human company too.
