Python Species

Here is an overview of the Python species I am currently working with...

ANTHILL PYTHONS (Antaresia Perthensis) The smallest python species in the world originating from Australia. These are also referred to as ‘Pygmy Pythons’. They got the name Anthill Python, due to their preferred hiding place inside termite mounds. Generally they range from a brown to brick red in colour. I have found them to be a small python with a BIG character.
ROYAL PYTHON (Python Regius) A very popular West African python species, and owned by many reptile enthusiasts around the world due to the variety of morphs and manageable size. Also known as ball pythons due to the fact they ‘ball up’ as a defence mechanism.
ANGOLAN PYTHON (Python Anchietae) A stocky python found in the South of Africa (Angola). Visually they look similar to Royal Pythons, but a true beauty in their own right. Their scales have a bumpy feel to them (especially on the tail), and they are a powerful, inquisitive species that grows slightly larger than Royal Pythons.
GREEN TREE PYTHON (Morelia Viridis) A jewel in any collection. These brightly coloured pythons make excellent display animals if given the right conditions and as the name suggests these are a green Python naturally found in tree type habitats. My animal is a Northern locality cross made up of Biak and Kofiau Island.
