Reticulated python (Python reticulatus)

Reticulated pythons can grow to huge lengths and specimens can be found up to 10 metres long. They feed on mammals, such as small deer or pigs, constricting and suffocating their prey before ingesting. In urban areas they prey mainly on rats and cats. There are rare, well documented cases of large adults killing and eating people. Prey are located by heat-sensitive pits in the labial scales (those lining the lips).

The species is found in all habitats, including primary forests, mangroves, plantations and scrublands. In urban areas of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and other cities they are sometimes flushed out during land clearance. Egg clutches can contain over 100 eggs.

The species ranges widely throughout Southeast Asia.
