The Burmese python is definitely one of the fastest growing python species in the world! If you’re up for a real “heavyweight” challenge then you might just get served as these snakes can grow up to 25 feet long and can potentially reach about 200 pounds in weight. Unfortunately, most of these docile snakes aren’t taken care of properly which is why most of them are just released into the wild. They are originally found in Southeast Asia and also inhabit the famous Everglade Park in Florida. Show More

Burmese Python Feeding Facts:

  • Burmese pythons like most snakes have very poor vision and the only way they can hunt for food is through flickering their tongues in order to stalk their potential prey. A snake’s tongue has built – in chemical receptors and also heat sensors allowing them to know their surroundings, find prey and also fight off potential threats.
  • The way they ambush their prey is through using a sit and wait method. This is very common among python species since most of them are non – venomous compared to vipers, which is why their only way to attack a prey is to be in a position for a kill. What they do is they submerged under the water or blend in the forest ground until they can grab their unsuspecting prey and kill it by constricting it, until the animal can’t breathe anymore before chomping them up with their sharp teeth.
  • Most Burmese pythons in the wild feed only a few times in a year because they usually take lots of time to digest their food.

Hatchling Feeding

Baby Burmese snakes can already eat an adult mouse during their first feedings. This is quite surprising for many first time python keepers because usually baby snakes starts eating only pinky mouse or small – sized prey, obviously not for Burmese pythons. Show More
