Burmese Python

Animals Home > Reptiles
 
The Burmese Python is a very large, thick and heavy snake. They are semi-aboreal and are native to forests in southern Asian countries including Burma and Indonesia. Wild populations of Burmese Pythons are now thought of as 'theatened'. The Burmese Python is quite popular as exotic pets, and captive breeding have helped to keep the wild populations stable.
