Burmese pythons are one of the 5 largest species of snakes in the world. They are a heavily built snake with females growing larger and more heavily built, with some individuals reaching 20ft in length. They are dark coloured snakes with a brown blotched patterning running head to tail.
Burmese pythons are found throughout Southern and Southeast Asia, including India, Nepal, to China and Indonesia. They inhabit grasslands, marshes, swamps, rocky foothills, woodlands, river valleys and jungles with open clearings.
In common with almost all snakes, the species reproduces sexually. Exceptionally, however, a female in captivity isolated from males produced viable eggs in five consecutive years; genetic evidence confirmed that the offspring were genetically identical to the mother, making the Burmese Python the only boid snake known to exhibit asexual reproduction (Groot et al. 2003).
