About the Python

A python is a type of non-venomous snake that is found in tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australia. Pythons are large, heavy snakes that can grow up to 20 feet long!

They are good hunters, and they use their powerful bodies to squeeze the life out of their prey, which can include rodents, birds, and small mammals. Pythons are popular pets, but they can also be dangerous, so it’s important to always handle them with care.
