Species Info

Habitat/Range: Albino Burmese pythons are native to jungles and grassy marshes of southern and south-eastern Asia. Burmese pythons are also highly invasive in Florida where they negatively affect native wildlife. There are currently efforts in place to remove these snakes. Burmese pythons and Florida alligators sometimes attack and prey on one another! 

Behavior: Burmese pythons are both arboreal and terrestrial and forage at night. They are also excellent swimmers and can stay submerged for 30 minutes before surfacing for air. These carnivorous snakes eat a variety of birds and mammals. As constrictor snakes, they wrap around their prey to subdue them before swallowing them whole.  

Breeding: Burmese pythons are solitary animals and come together only for spring mating. Females lay clutches of up to 100 eggs which they incubate for up to 30 days. 

Conservation: Listing: Vulnerable. Their populations are decreasing in their native range due to illegal trading and habitat loss.
