The Reticulated Python is located in Southeast Asia in
countries including but not limited to Vietnam, Malaysia,
Indonesia and the Philippines.
The Reticulated Python's diet consist of birds, mammals Habitat
of different sizes including deer and pigs and on very rare
occasions possibly humans. Pythons will typically wait
in hiding for prey to move close by before striking. The
Reticulated Python is not venomous; like other members
of the Boa family it will use its large muscular body to
constrict and suffocate its prey.
The Reticulated Python can usually be found near water,
including ponds and rivers, in warm and humid tropical
rainforests of southeast Asia. They may also have a
tendency to live near human activity.
The average length of an adult Reticulated Python can
range from 15 - 25 feet making it the longest snake and
reptile in the world. It is possible for Reticulated Pythons
to grow over 30 feet in length. The adult weight can be
over 300 pounds.
Unlike other members of the Boa Family who bear live
young, Pythons will lay eggs. The female Reticulated
Python can have between 25 - 100 eggs at a time. The
mother will coil around the eggs and create muscular
vibrations to raise the temperature of the eggs several
