Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Stradbroke Dreamtime, Oodgeroo Nunukul, 1972, Australia, MEMOIR/FOLKTALES

"...Her father's tribal totem is the carpet snake, and much to their mother's dismay, Carpie, a ten-foot pet snake, slithers around their home. Oodgeroo fondly remembers Carpie; she "used to sit in the lavatory for hours and tell him my innermost secrets, and it was very satisfying the way old Carpie would never interrupt the conversation or crawl away."..."

(H.S., p. 261)
