name(s): Reticulated Python
Span: Captive Life Span of 25-30 years
Appearance: the patterns of these snakes have been likened to an
oriental rug in terms of variations on a theme of gold, olive, tan, brown
and dark gray blotches. The blotches are outlined in black, against a
siver gray body. Reticulated pythons also have the ability to change the
shades and intensity of these colors. Eye color is usually orange.
Ease of care: Relatively easy but, they like high humidity which
gets harder to provide as the snake gets larger. They are a thin skin
species and have problems shedding if its too dry.
Cage set up: Reticulated Pythons whould be kept in much larger
cages than Burmese, preferably room-size cages for the adults.
