Python road kill in National Park

Python after road kill dumped on a river bank

This is a photo of a Python which was killed by a tourist vehicle in a famous National Park. The authorities removed the carcass and threw it on a riverside, where you can see the maggots doing their work of decomposition. It is not clear what was the vehicle which could kill a big python, without the vehicle itself being upturned. Since I found it very late, there was no point in searching for the wheel tracks.
