Burmese Python

INTRODUCTION

Burmese pythons are one of the five largest snake species in the world. Urma is currently 3.5m long but will continue to grow for the rest of her life, potentially reaching over 5m long and weighing over 100Kg.

In the wild Burmese pythons eat a range of appropriately-sized birds and mammals up to the size of goats and small deer. Despite their impressive size, this remains a popular species in the pet trade, but obviously careful consideration must be taken when deciding if you are capable of caring for such a large snake.
