From: Southern Asia and Florida
Fun Fact: Arnie is almost 11ft long and 3.5 stone!
The Burmese Python is one of the larger species and is ranked as the 6th largest of all snakes in the world. They don’t have venom but that doesn’t mean a bite won’t hurt! In the wild this reptile is a major threat to anything or anyone that gets in their way, however, our captive bred giant is very friendly and isn’t interested in hurting human beings unless taunted or frightened by us or if we smell of food!
The average length of Burmese Pythons is 12 feet long but they can end up being much longer – growing up to a massive 23 feet. In the wild they can weigh up to 200 pounds but Arnie is a mere 44 pounds. The yellow colouring and reddish eyes makes this guy an Albino.
