All hail your new god, this three-eyed python

In a time where people are leaning away from religion, I present your new deity. Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife rangers have found a three-eyed python.

The snake was found on the Arnhem Highway just out of Darwin, near (wait for it) Humpty Doo. If that doesn’t sound like some second coming shit then I don’t know what to tell you. Sometimes life delivers not the heroes you expect, but the ones you need.


The three-eyed python was found just outside of Humpty Doo in the Northern Territory. He has since passed from the living realm into that of the all powerful.

According to NT Parks and Wildlife, the mutation took place in the embryonic stage, and is not the result of two heads fused together. Mutations in reptiles are surprisingly common, but what was unusual in this lil boy was that his third eye worked.

In an x-ray conducted on the python, it was discovered that the snake had three fully formed eye sockets, and the third eyeball was fully functioning. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say not only that, but it was almost definitely all seeing.

The 40-centimetre juvenile python has since sadly passed away, but he will live in our hearts and minds forever. In the meantime, I’ll be holding a Three-Eyed Python shrine building session this weekend, if anyone’s interested.
